Windows 7 - Support is Fading Away

Windows 7 - Support is Fading Away

The end of the Windows 7 is set for January 2020. “End of life” means Microsoft will discontinue all support and all updates, including security updates.

What Do We Do Now? The days of rolling back the Windows 10 upgrade are over.  It’s time to start scheduling the upgrade or replacing your computer.

Why Is Windows 7 Going End of Life?
The Windows 7 “end of life” is similar to that of previous Microsoft operating systems. Microsoft states, “Every Windows product has a lifecycle. ” The lifecycle begins when a product is released and ends when it’s no longer supported.

What Does “End of Life” Mean?
“End of life” is the date after which an application is no longer supported by the company that makes it. After Windows 7 “end of life,” you can continue to use the operating system, but at your own risk. New viruses and other malware are developed all the time and without the security updates to fight them off, your data and your system are vulnerable to attack.

Upgrading From Windows 7
Instead of using an old and unsupported operating system, it’s time to upgrade to Microsoft’s most recent OS. Windows 10 was released in 2015 and it is designed to be faster than Windows 7 and provides a number of other useful benefits.

There are some visual differences between the two but you’ll see similarities which will help you get up to speed quickly.
