      LD,

       

      Yes, Windows Vista SP1 support is ending soon. When a product reaches the end of support, it no longer receives security updates which can help protect it from malicious software as well as other software updates which can help improve the reliability of Windows.

       

      Support for Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) will end on July 12, 2011.
      If you are unsure of the version of operating system and service pack installed on your system, please visit: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/help/which-version-of-the-windows-operating-system-am-i-running

      Windows Vista has newer service pack available for free that is still supported. For complete information about the end of support for various Windows versions, please visit: http://www.microsoft.com/eos.
