Can you believe that Windows 7 is 10 years old? Some time ago Microsoft announced that support for Windows 7 will come to an end on January 14, 2020.
So, what does “end of support” really mean?
On January 14, 2020, and going forward, your computer will still function but Microsoft will no longer provide the following for your operating system:
- Technical support
- Software updates
- Security updates or fixes
Can you still use your computer?
Technically yes. You could continue to use your PC running Windows 7 however, without continued software and security updates it will be at great risk of hacking, viruses, and malware.
What should you do?
Well, it is once again time for an operating system upgrade. You will need to migrate over to Windows 10 as soon as you can.
Do you need a new computer?
That depends. Some older systems can handle the new operating system and some will not be able to.
