Windows Vista, Milton Keynes Windows Vista and Office 2007 are no longer supported by Microsoft.

There are a few steps you can take if you rather like Vista and don't want to move on:

  1. Use Firefox for browsing the internet and emails. If you cannot download Firefox because Internet Explorer no longer works, you can download it on another PC and install with a memory stick.
  2. AVG Free antivirus still supports Vista, so its a good choice.
  3. Use Libre Office instead of Microsoft Office.
  4. Stick to mainstream websites.
  5. Don't use your PC for banking or shopping etc. A tablet like an iPad is more secure.
