To avoid problems just upgrade to Windows 10

Microsoft recommends users as quickly as possible to upgrade to a better version. Naturally, the software giant would like this version to be Windows 10 which is by now their last and we can say best version. However, suitable and most popular so far is the Windows 7 version which will be supported and updated form Microsoft till January 2020.

Standard maintenance of Windows Vista was suspended on April 10, 2012, after five years ends ends its extended support. After that date, Microsoft will only support three versions of its operating system: Windows 7, 8.1 and 10.

Windows XP was much more used than Windows Vista

In the month of April 2014 Microsoft discontinued support of Windows XP, though the operating system was still used in many PCs and until recently was second in popularity in the world. Some analysts noted that currently its distribution worldwide is at around 9%.

This cannot happen with Windows Vista though because now its share is only at about 0.84%. According to the analytical company NetMarketShare, Windows Vista has reached the maximum share of 1.42% last April.
