  • End of Internet Explorer versions 8,9 &10.

    If you're using Windows check which version of Internet Explorer is installed. Technical support, including security updates, has ended. for versions 8, 9 and 10. Your computer will be at risk, more vulnerable to attack, virus, malware etc.

    Use this link to check using Internet Explorer http://windows.microsoft.com/en-au/i...ion-am-i-using

    I quit using that years ago. Firefox is more secure and faster to boot.

      You don't have to be using it for it to be exploited.

            While it is possible to uninstall Internet Explorer it's inadvisable as it is used to verify that your copy of Windows isn't pirated. If you want to do it here are instructions from WikiHow http://www.wikihow.com/Uninstall-Int...rer-Completely Personally I think it would be easier to update to the newest version of IE.

              My computer/ add and remove programs/ kill this monster.

              Then I search and kill off the bits that remain. Kind of like rooting out evil aol...

              Painful but should be done...

                  This article from Jan 6, 2016 says you don't need to upgrade.

                  If you are still using Windows Vista, IE 9 will continue to be supported until official support for Vista itself ends in mid-2017. http://www.windowscentral.com/micros...e-ie-11-jan-12

                    Current advice says that Vista users not on IE 9 should upgrade to it, it's available from snipca.com/19187

                        They're trying to get us to move to Windows 10 and Edge.
                        Indyref2 - still, "Yes."

                            Of course there is no money to be made out of having to support W 7 & 8 and IE 11 so the sooner they can ditch them the happier MS will be. Once the holdouts are sufficiently diminished in number so the outcry will be manageable they'll pull the plug.
