Just...how did you get that idea?  Please..provide the rest of the story.

 

Your title is somewhat absurd...but it's possible that a given program may be outdated for a given version of Windows.  In any case, if you want an intelligent answer...you need to provide more detail on what happened and why you feel it's a problem for your system.

 

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.

Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic323892.html/page__p__1797792#entry1797792 , taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.
