I have an old...

I have an old computer running Vista Home Enhanced. Is my only option to install Windows 10 in ordwer to continue using my computer for very basic needs?

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your computer?

It is a Gateway with 3.0 gb at 32 mb

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your computer? What have you tried so far?

It seems to be a consequence of no microsoft support for Vista. I can no longer download my Canadian income tax program as one example. I have had some minimal experience with 10, and am not sure I like what I see.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

No, I dont yhink so.

If that will keep my old computer useable for a while, let's do it
Tech Support Specialist: Specialist Sean S., Computer Support Specialist replied 6 months ago

Yes, that would be the next step up from Windows Vista and wouldn't require much upgrading in hardware. One moment while I find the best location to get this at

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
