All Microsoft support ended for Windows XP in April 2014.
All Microsoft support ended for Windows Vista in April 2017.

The Internet Explorer 8 browser in Windows XP and the Internet Explorer 9 browser in Windows Vista are both extremely outdated and no longer support most websites.
The Firefox 52.9.0 ESR browser had all support ended by Mozilla in September 2018.
All other browsers are extremely more out-of-date than Firefox 52.9.0 ESR is, so it's the only remaining browser for these 2 operating systems that still supports most websites.

I recently updated my install and update guides for both operating systems and successfully tested them.
For those of you who are still insistent on sticking with these operating systems, a copy of the updated guides are present in the "Windows XP" and "Windows Vista" sections.

Many programs and security tools that install and work fine Windows 7 & 8.1 & 10 no longer do so in Windows XP & Vista.
Some things have to come to an end, sooner or later.
:(
