"I have tried to upgrade but to no avail."
i need more info about what happens when you connect your camera but incase you haven't tried, the camera must be turned on after you connect it via usb.
vista shouldn't be a problem.
does the scanner and camera wizard launch when you connect your camera?
i'm not too familiar with olympus models, but try connecting the [powered down] camera to your computer while it's in PLAY mode. power it up and see if windows will launch a prompt.
is your computer new? many newer models have card readers built right in. if yours does not, and the above suggestions didn't work, try connecting an external card reader and uploading your images that way.

You could try another web browser, for example mozilla firefox, or google chrome... there's also a solution to download Ubuntu and burn to disc, reboot from the disc and upload using this other O.S. which is based on GNU/Linux file system and is immune to viruses and able to read/access windows files on the same computer you booted from. :)
You would need to be a Microsoft Certified Partner to download a copy of Windows Vista Ultimate from their MSDN website. I cannot imagine it being available for free (legally). You may download Service Packs for free but not the product. You can purchase Vista Ultimate as an upgrade from office supply stores on sale occasionally.
Windows Vista upgrade software is available for purchase & immediate download at the microsoft website. It is also available at Wal-mart and other retailers. There is no free upgrade available. Hope this helps.
If the old driver won't work, and Vista won't recognize it without a driver, I'm afraid you're out of luck. If that is the case, find a bud with an old PC and XP Home or earlier OS, and get your pics of the camera that way. Then upgrade to a newer camera.
Try uninstalling the program and then install the earlier version via the CD that came with the camera. If your computer has a built in SD reader, you could use the drag and drop method of transferring your photos as I find that is the easiest and hassle-free way.
