Google Chrome Support Message

Are you still using Windows XP or Vista and seeing this error message for Google Chrome?

You have a few options: 

    1. Do nothing 

Your computer will not suddenly stop working, but will become gradually less compatible with some websites as they choose not to support your computer. 

    2. Change your web browser 

The only web browser that will continue to be updated and supported on older systems is Mozilla Firefox. This is free and very similar to Google Chrome. I can install this for you, or you can download it yourself from this link: https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/new/?scene=2

    3. Upgrade to Windows 7

This is only possible if your computer is new enough to support Windows 7, which is likely if your computer was built after 2007. However, Windows 7 is no longer available to purchase new, although I do occasionally have old, redundant computers from which a Windows 7 licence can be transferred to. The total cost for this upgrade work is approx. £150.

    4. Replace the entire computer

If your computer is 7-10 years old or more, it may be near to or already past the point where any form of maintenance or upgrades can continue to keep it compatible and useful.
