I have gotten some messages from different sites that my browser or computer is not supported. Does that mean I don't have a working computer? Or what. I have series 7 computer. maybe 8-10 yrs. old. Runs good. I noticed I haven't been getting many updates any more from Microsoft.

Your computer has a crank on the side and the spring inside that makes it work is weak, I know of a nice antique shop in Crivitz that you can unload that antique.
There is also a computer dealer in Crivitz that can help get you in the 21st century. lol

Go to any Senior Center and you can find a lot of old cranks sitting around. ;-)

I had an older (10 yr) Dell. I always got that message. I think it means Microsoft will no longer stand by your program. I still used mine and ignored the warnings.

Sparky, you can always call Gary at the UES computer store in Crivitz at 715-854-9818. He's located at 117 N Hwy 141 on the west side of the street across from the Aurora clinic.

I'll keep that in mind. My computer runs very well and just wondered if the updates will quit in 2 yrs. Guess I will ride it out and if anything happens I'll get a new one.
