Changing operating systems

Hello there,
I don't know if it's the right forum post this. But here goes. I have a Dell Inspiron 531 Vista operating system. It has been working well for my use. But I believe by the end of this month I will be vulnerable because I can't get any updates.

My question is can I change the operating system in order to get the updates needed on this computer, to give it a longer life.

The security that I have on this computer is what comes with the Windows Vista security and through my cable company. Is the security from the cable company sufficient? Providing they keep up-to-date.

Anything you have to say would be greatly appreciated.
