A computer client called me this morning about their Microsoft Windows computer that would only show a white, blank screen when he web browsed.  I kept asking questions and it turned out it was Microsoft Vista he was using. I mentioned it wasn’t safe to use because it was at the End-of-Life for updates. He said wasn’t doing anything dangerous with it, but he was on the internet .  Probably his web browser was out of date or it checked the operating system and wouldn’t allow itself to run on Vista.  I never did hear back from him and I’m not sure if he is still using Vista or not. 

Be careful using outdated operating systems on the internet like Windows Vista and Windows 7. You might get infected with a virus and loose data.  One option I do is install Linux on older Microsoft Windows computers and give them a second life.
