Support for Windows Vista ends April 11, 2017
After April 11, 2017, Windows Vista users will no longer receive new security updates, non-security hotfixes, free or paid assisted support options, or online technical content updates from Microsoft. Microsoft support will not address fixes and security patches in the core Windows kernel. PCs running Windows Vista after April 11, 2017 should not be considered to be protected, and it is important that customers migrate to a current supported operating system such as Windows 10, so they can receive regular security updates to protect their computer from malicious attacks.
