Windows Vista End of Support - Staying Safe on Vista After April 11, 2017

Microsoft ends support for Windows Vista on April 11, 2017, meaning that Microsoft will stop releasing security updates on PC's running Windows Vista. If you continue to use Windows Vista on your computer after Vista's End of Life, your computer may be vulnerable to virus and malware infections as Microsoft will no longer continue making critical security patches for your operating system. Microsoft's end of Windows Vista support will also mean that Internet Explorer 9, Office 2007, and Microsoft Security Essentials on Vista will no longer receive any new security updates. More third-party hardware and software developers will also discontinue support for Vista, meaning that modern devices and applications may not run on computers running Windows Vista in the future. Therefore, with the end of support messages, it's time to say goodbye to Windows Vista. Many old computers that came with Windows Vista preinstalled can be upgraded to Windows 10 or 7 and run them very fast, if you have a Windows Vista Premium Ready PC with any dual-core processor and 2 GB of RAM. You can buy Windows 10 from Microsoft's website. However, this video will show you how to stay safe on Windows Vista after Vista's end of support: - Internet Explorer 9 and Google Chrome are both no longer supported on Windows Vista.
