Correct, am in the same boat.
 Constantly being told, update browser here for latest version and then theer is nothing there.
Wrote to a few companies about browser problems and they all basically said sorry it was out of their hands.

Remember reading that the only reason win 7 etc won't run on old machines is because MS have disabled recognition of old chip series.
Something to do with the numbering, 486 series, a bit above my head
Look back at replies #17 and #21.
It works like this -
1 New systems need more powerful chips. 
2 When the more powerful chips are available, programmers find ways to use the power
3 Go to 1
Repeat until skint.

on my vista laptop I had several programs stop working when it automatically upgraded internet explorer to ie9, this changed the way vista did things and stopped the programs working as they were then no longer compatible. I had to roll back to IE8 and block the ie9 update and then they were fine again.
the alternative is to use a different browser, firefox or google chrome are ok, but then windows can be fussy and only download updates using iinternet explorer. dont try and unload internet explorer though as it is an essential part of the windows operating system.
