Windows 7 is going End of Life

February 13, 2019

Support for Windows 7 is ending

All good things must come to an end, even Windows 7. After January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or support for PCs running Windows 7. But you can keep the good times rolling by moving to Windows 10.

You can continue to use Windows 7, but once support ends, your PC will become more vulnerable to security risks. Windows will operate but you will stop receiving security and feature updates. These updates are provided to patch vulnerabilities exploited by hackers and virus writers alike.

New software applications are optimized for the most recent operating systems. That means when using EOL operating systems, you may not be able to upgrade to the latest version of your software application. Support for Internet Explorer on Windows 7 devices will also be discontinued on January 14, 2020. As a component of the Windows operating system, Internet Explorer follows the same support life cycle.

Moving to Windows 10
