Microsoft reminds us that it will no longer support or update Internet Explorer 8, 9, and 10.  So, as of next week, it is permanently “lights out” for older versions of Internet Explorer.

Microsoft urges users to upgrade to Internet Explorer version 11 or use their new browser, once known as Spartan and now known as Microsoft Edge for security purposes.

Of course, you also have the option to install a different browser such as widely popular Google Chrome or Firefox.

One more patch will be released on January 12 for the older browsers.  After that, “End of Life” notices will show.
