Support for Vista Gold (no Service Packs) ended on Tuesday, 13 April 2010. Computers still running Vista Gold "will no longer receive software updates [i.e., updates released on & after 22 April 2010 so you're now 4 months behind on critical security updates!!] from Windows Update" until SP1 has been installed (which will require that several Prerequisite Updates be installed first). See

    • What does it mean if my version of Windows is no longer supported?

That being said, free unlimited installation and compatibility support for Vista SP1 has been extended a third time but ends on 30 August 2010. Some issues may require more advanced support for which there is a charge.
