Microsoft is ending support for Windows 7

NOTICE TO WINDOWS 7 USERS

On January 14, 2020, Microsoft will stop providing support for Windows 7. After that date, there will no longer be any software updates and technical support from the American giant.

What does this mean for me and my company?

After January 14, 2020, PCs running Windows 7 will no longer be eligible for the following support:

  • Software updates
  • Security updates and patches
  • Support for any technical problem

In other words, if you continue to use Windows 7 after that date, your computers will still work but you will be at increased risk of viruses and malware, which is not recommended.
