Support for this operating system is ending (Vista) but brings up Windows XP Support?

Teraforce88 asked on

I booted my old laptop today, and I got a message from MS Security essentials stating that support for [Windows Vista] is ending, and when that happens, I wont be getting updates, yada yada.  However, when I click the link below, it takes me to the Windows XP end-of-support page!

I did check the the EOL for Vista SP2, and it's 4/11/17, which is just 3 months away.  I think MS Security essentials is linking to the wrong page though, no?
