LinkedIn tanks at log in w/ Windows Vista, fine with prior operating systems
It sounds like you have connection issues.
For starter please consider disabling your firewall (under control panel) then try connecting.
If this doesn't work please try reseting internet explorer settings (under explorer-tools).
Check with tech support of linkedln to see if they require special internet explorer security settings and have them walk you through your settings to make sure nothing has changed.
Last but not least I'd try to go to system restore and restore to a point where you are sure evrything had worked like couple of weeks ago or even one month ago if possible.
(start-programs-accessories-system tools-system restore).
The system restore tool doesn't erase or change any data although if installed any program since that point you are going to have to reinstall it since system restore will restore all registry information to that specific point and disregard everything you did afterwards, therefor I'm going to have to tell you to use at your own risk.
Thank you for using agadycom.

If the laptop was bought as new, the message can be a bogus , coming from some kind of virus. It is rare that a seller distibute a laptop with non genuine software.
To know if you own a windows valid licence check if there is Windows licence sticker on the bottom side of the laptop.
If you have no sticker with Vista serial, like this one (they are for XP yours must be for Vista):
Then installed Windows is probably a pirate copy.
The fact that the problem has gone undetected for some times may be normal, as Microsoft controls genuinity only when you do certain updates.

Try reboting your computer, if tha does not work, Go to Microsoft.com and contact customer service and tell them about your problem. Also, you can try to download Service Pack 2 or 3.
Before you do this, you may want to try to go to the Control Panel and click on the System and Security option and click on "Find and Fix Problems" and follow instructions, or click on the System and security and check the :Action Center" or "Windows Update."
Explore this page, you will probably find a solution for your problem. You can also try to "restore your computer" to an ealier time. The one you will find under the "Action Center.
I hope that this info will help you to resolve your problem.

if you haven't fixed it yet
with win 10 you have to go into graphics board driver properties and set to capability win os that you were using then down a bit further you will see a list of settings starting with 250
unclick any ticked and then when you set the pixel setting to 32 or 64 it will stay there
while it operates ok on win 7 and others , for some reason win 10 doesn't like that 250 ticked

Network sharing center won't stay open
just been fixing a window vista laptop with problems
Microsoft stopped supporting windows vista years ago
no updates or upgrades
you are at base service pack one
and computer should have been updated to service pack 3 years ago
from service pack 3 a windows 10 upgrade is possible
try an ethernet or usb wifi connection .
.see if the computer will run the way you want it
any windows vista computer is a x32 bit system
with upgrades can run x64
x86 is the current
if you are running anything higher than 32 or x64 software the computer will be slow sometimes freeze or shut down
vista came out same time as and dial up internet
and early broad band
vista can run office 95 but windows 2000 is stable
