Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is reported ending the Windows Vista era.

The Windows OS will continue to work on PCs still running it however, with no support from Microsoft, it will become more vulnerable to viruses and security risks because the software giant will no longer issue updates.

The least-loved of the Microsoft operating systems has run out of road. Hence, if we try using Window Vista and internet explorer 9 together it would lead the PC to additional threats.

Can you still use Windows Vista? Smaller companies likely jumped straight from Windows XP to Windows 7, which Microsoft introduced in 2009 and which proved far more popular. Features like instant search, Windows hot start, shadow copy, parental controls and games explorer are some of the names in a long list of pointless features that Vista packed.

Although Microsoft meant to create a more powerful, innovative operating system, Windows Vista didn't live up to the expectations.

Soccer President Sunil Gulati said regarding Trump's opinion on teaming up with Mexico. "This is a milestone day for U.S. The USA held the 1994 World Cup which had the highest average attendance in the tournament's history.


North Korea calls US strikes on Syria 'unforgivable'
Pyongyang has repeatedly defied worldwide warnings about conducting missile launches and testing nuclear devices. It claims its nuclear weapons are a necessary deterrent to the USA military threat.


Russian Federation slams United Kingdom for Syria support
Tillerson will also press Russian Federation on its failure to prevent Syria using chemical weapons, he said in interviews aired Sunday.


'Also, as more software and hardware manufacturers continue to optimise for more recent versions of Windows, you can expect to encounter more apps and devices that do not work with Windows Vista'.

More than 10 years after it first launched, Microsoft has officially ended support for Windows Vista.

Vista owners can upgrade to Windows 10 but it's unlikely that PCs from Vista's early days will be able to support the latest version anyway. The users that are still on this operating system will have to migrate to a newer version of operating system if they want to stay secure.

Vista was launched in 2007 as the long-awaited successor to Windows XP. According to Steam, 0.1 percent of its users are on Windows Vista, an example of its very small install base. It will also add Game Mode, which is created to make any PC game run and perform faster by allocating more of a PC's hardware resources to those titles. So, we can say that nobody will really miss this operating system.

Unfortunately upon its release, Vista gained largely negative reviews, despite the security improvements. Its adoption was so low, Microsoft extended its sales of Windows XP five months longer than initially intended, and laptop vendors including Dell, HP, and Lenovo continued to include a copy of XP after they were no longer allowed to sell laptops with it preinstalled.
