Your system specs say you're running Win 10. Is that an error?

It would certainly be a lot easier to use Steam on System One, since Steam ended support for Vista some time ago. The most recent writing I’ve seen about using Steam on Vista is at Trying to get modern game clients (Steam, Origin, and others) to fully work on Vista (Extended Kernel).

As for updating root certificates on Vista, Certifacte Trust Provider error installing updates.

I wish you luck because this sort of thing is not for novices.
awesome thank you so much
