Just a heads up for any of you still using it.

--- Quote ---Microsoft is putting the final nail in the coffin of its 10-year old and often maligned operating system, Windows Vista.

After April 11, the U.S. technology giant will end support for Vista, meaning customers will no longer get crucial security or software updates.

Yeap, I know all about it. My old HP desktop has Windows Vista. It's no longer safe to use it on-line.
Sad, I like Windows Vista. Now need to upgrade my CPU or just buy a new one. Luckily we have 2 laptops with Windows 10.

I guess for you Art it might be time to try a new operating system for that computer, yet I am told that many internet cafes in the Philippines are still even using XP, so as long as a person does not use their Vista or XP for banking or other important things, then I would guess browsing should still be okay.

It says it's only compatible with MS Windows Defender, which I don't use, because I'm using something else where my MS Windows Defender has been deactvated.
