Microsoft has finally announced the end of Vista. On April 11, 2017, Microsoft will cease support of the Vista operating system.
What does that mean?
Since Microsoft no longer supports Windows Vista, Vista users will potentially be vulnerable to malicious software and attacks. Microsoft wrote to users, “If you continue to use Windows Vista now that support has ended, your computer will still work but it might become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses.
What else is also no longer supported
Windows also is not supporting Internet Explorer 9. Your PC will face an additional threat if you try to connect Windows Vista PC to the Internet with Internet Explorer 9. Also, as more manufacturers continue to optimize for recent versions of Windows, you can expect to encounter more apps and devices that do not work with Windows Vista.”
If you’re still a Windows Vista user, you may be wondering what’s next? You can continue using Vista, but exercising caution while browsing the internet is now of your utmost priority. Never click on suspicious links or give out your personal information to sites you don’t trust. The best thing you can do for now at this time is to upgrade your operating system from Vista to a newer one such as Windows 10.
