Symantec preventing windows vista from updating
I'd tend to keep the vista pc as is as a spare/odd job device. If you do not need any software which is Windows based then go with a Google Chromebook. You need to manually remove the Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 client from computers on Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 2008 operating systems (32-bit or 64-bit).As i previously stated no security to can patch vulnerability holes in your OS.Staying safe online means staying up to date and current in your security. If requirements are limited, a Chromebook could do, but for greater flexibility, ability, variety of progs, apps and games Windows would be the winner.Certain banks do not even allow users to login using outdated browsers and an OS.
If anyone plans on doing any type of online shopping or banking then you need to stay current on security.
Hackers love pray who do not have there pc's up to date. If nothing else this thread has given me food for thought about whether to upgrade the OS on my to PC from Vista to Windows 7 since most of my applications are shown to be compatable with Windows 7. Allan, My main desktop and laptop are Windows 10 and I find them most satisfactory and better than all previous windows. In fact if you could make do with a Chromebook, simply converting or dual booting your vista pc to linux would be better and cheapest. That way they can try it without actually installing it.
If you can easily afford a replacement and any necessary new software, I'd go for a new win10 pc. Installing Linux is actually a great choice New Roger.
