Norton ongoing protection for Windows Vista after Microsoft ends support

Microsoft has formally announced the Windows Vista end of support on April 11th, 2017. Your Norton products will continue to support Windows Vista for the foreseeable future. Current supported products include the latest version of:

  • Norton AntiVirus

  • Norton Internet Security

  • Norton 360

  • Norton Security Suite

  • Norton Security

However, be aware that in addition to running the most up-to-date security products, another important aspect of protecting your computer is to keep them current with the latest service pack and patches for the operating system.

As Microsoft announced that they will no longer publish patches for Windows Vista, these computers may become targets for cybercriminals, particularly if new vulnerabilities are discovered in the operating system. Depending on the nature of the threats involved, Windows Vista may be susceptible to viruses and risks to which more recent iterations of Windows are immune. Due to this, we strongly recommend that you upgrade your Windows Vista computer to a supported operating system as soon as possible.
