For Online Computer Support, Ask a Computer Technician
Hi Ronald. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.
Just because Google will no longer be providing Chrome updates it does not mean that the
browser will quit working. It's just that it may not work correctly on some websites.
To work around that you have some options. You can use a different browser like Mozilla Firefox.
You can also upgrade the operating system to Windows 7 or higher. Upgrading the operating
system would involve the cost of purchasing a copy of the new operating system.
There are certain things to consider when upgrading an older machine. I have no doubt that Windows 10 can be installed to it but because of the age of the machine driver support will be almost non-existent. Some things may
not work correctly. You would be doing a clean install of the new operating system. You would need to back up all
your personal files first. Any software programs that you have would need to be installed after the upgrade to Windows 10 and there is a good possibility that some of the older programs won't run under Windows 10. I can help walk you through doing this but obviously I can't be there in person to assist.
You can download a copy of Windows 10 for free. What isn't free is the product key needed to activate
the installation with Microsoft. The lowest price I've seen is here:
The retail cost of Windows 10 is $119.99
