Reminder: Microsoft ending EXTENDED Support for Vista in April, 2017

All software products have a lifecycle. After April 11, 2017, Microsoft is ending support for the Windows Vista operating system. After this date, this product will no longer receive:

 

Security updates,
Non-security hotfixes,
Free or paid assisted support options, or
Online technical content updates from Microsoft.

 

Computers running the Windows Vista operating system will continue to work even after support ends. However, using unsupported software may increase the risks of viruses and other security threats.

 

For more information please see:

Are there people who still use Windows Vista?

Yes, there are people who are using older hardware. They could not or would not upgrade their hardware or software for one reason or another.
