Even though it was only released just over 3 years ago, Microsoft have just ended support for the original version of Windows Vista. This means that if you are still using the original version of Vista and have not upgraded to Vista Service Pack 1 or 2, your Windows system will no longer qualify for support from Microsoft, including hotfixes to patch bugs and security problems. This means that if you use Vista you will need to upgrade to at least Service Pack 1 (although we’d recommend Service Pack 2) in order to keep your Vista system secure.

The 13th of July will also see the end of support for XP systems running Service Pack 2, meaning that if you are still using XP, you will need to upgrade to Service Pack 3 in order to keep receiving security fixes and updates. If you aren’t sure which version of XP or Vista you have, you can quickly check as follows:
1. Press [Windows Key] + [R].
2. Type WINVER and click OK.
3. The service pack version installed on your system will be displayed. Click OK to close the window.
