    Didn't Vista go out of support a few weeks back?

    In that case you should upgrade regardless, you're taking a huge risk letting an unsupported/unsecured operating system connect to the net. 7 should be cheap enough and goes to 2020 if you don't want to fork out the £120 for 10.

    Download, try checking Amazon. Last update officially came out in 2015, but support and patches will run to 2020, should run automatically once installed.
