Whitwick & District U3A - Computing tip February 2016
Windows users should be aware of the following information issued by Microsoft.
Beginning January 12, 2016, only the most current version of Internet Explorer available for any supported operating system will receive technical support and security updates, as shown in the table below:
|Windows Operating System||Internet Explorer Version|
|Windows Vista SP2||Internet Explorer 9|
|Windows 7 SP1||Internet Explorer 11|
|Windows 8.1 Update||Internet Explorer 11|
For those running an older version of Internet Explorer, such as Internet Explorer 8 on Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1), Microsoft recommends customers plan to migrate to one of the above supported operating systems and browser combinations as soon as possible.
Products whose support lifecycle ends on or before January 12, 2016 are not impacted and therefore not represented in the table. For example, support for Windows 8 ended on January 12, 2016, therefore it is not listed.
End of support means there will be no more security updates, non-security updates, free or paid assisted support options, or online technical content updates.
