Support for Windows 7 ends in January 14, 2020

All things eventually come to an end, and technology is no different. Windows 7 began in 2009 and now — after a decade of service — it will be reaching end-of-life. Starting January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer support Windows 7 systems with security patches and regular upgrades.

What does the end of support for Windows 7 mean?

This means that, while you and your employees will still be able to use your PCs normally, you are more vulnerable to security breaches. You also won’t be up-to-date with Microsoft’s latest patches and quality of life improvements.

Which is the recommendation?

To take advantage of the latest hardware capabilities, we recommend moving to a new PC with Windows 10. By buying a newer machine, you will have Windows support and you will not need to worry about age-related hardware failure. Upgrading to Windows 10 gives users full access to security patches and software updates.

What happens if you continue to use Windows 7?

You can continue to use Windows 7, but your PC will become more vulnerable to security risks once support ends. Windows will operate, but you will stop receiving security and quality updates. Microsoft will no longer provide technical support for any issues.

Keeping your machines updated to the latest versions is just another step to ensure that your business runs.
