Windows 7 End Of Life Looms Near

image_printPrint

 

After 10 years in production, Windows 7 will reach End Of Life status on January 14, 2020.  After this date, Microsoft will no longer provide tech support, operating system and security updates.  Windows 7 will continue to function, however as time passes it may become more vulnerable to security threats that are no longer going to be addressed and fixed.

While in some cases it may be possible to install Windows 10 on hardware running Windows 7, it is usually best to upgrade to more up to date hardware along with the operating system for maximum performance and compatibility, in other words, purchase a new computer.

For more information about this event, check out Microsoft’s Windows 7 End Of Life support information page, as well as the Windows 10 Frequently Asked Questions page, which answers common questions about Windows 10 and migrating from Windows 7.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns about transitioning from Windows 7 to Windows 10.
