Windows Vista’s mainstream support ended in April 2012, five years after Vista’s general release date, meaning the Operating System no longer received non-security fixes and new features. Today (12/04/2017), extended support ended which includes security updates. This is standard practice for Microsoft operating systems, which typically end all support a decade into each version’s life-cycle.
Mainstream support for an operating system ends five years after release and extended support ends 10 years after release, according to Microsoft’s road-map.
In the unlikely event, you haven’t moved on from Windows Vista, now is the time to do so. The lack of new security fixes leave users vulnerable to malicious software like viruses and spyware that can compromise personal information.
