You would need to convince the manufacturer that they should continue creating updates for your old device.

 

Good luck with that ...

thanks spywaredr.

sorry my post should have read:

'' am i able to install anti virus software on my chromebook''

the operating system as you are most probably aware is  google .

are you suggesting i contact them   for updates despite their message of discontinuation.

from your experience; have you known others that have been successful in this.

thanks

bj
