Hmm...the latest IE is 7 and it don't seem supported. NN has not been supported since Feb 2008.


Supported Operating Systems:

* Windows 98
* Windows 2000
* Windows XP

Hmm...seems Vista is not supported, but it will support operating systems that have not had security or any other kind of update in years.

Makes me wonder how secure their operating systems really are and would I really want my information on their computers.
