As of 14th January 2020 Windows 7 was EOL (End Of Life), in simple terms this means that there will be no further security updates or patches.
From a security point of view this makes the operating system potentially vulnerable to security breaches and cyber attacks. With this in mind like it’s predecessor (Windows XP) we would advise all our clients that have not already updated to update without delay.
We are aware that some Windows 7 PC’s are still able to update to Windows 10 using the previous link from Microsoft. We are not sure how long this will be available for or whether all these PC’s and laptops will run satisfactory once updated. Some users may find it more cost effective to buy new hardware with a Windows 10 License already included (OEM Software).
If you are unsure of your options, please give us a call.
