Windows 7 Expiring
Windows 7 was one of Microsoft’s best products. It was very stable and easy to work with. But, all good things come to an end, and Microsoft is discontinuing extended support in mid-January.
Windows 7 expiring means no more security updates.
Some of you may wonder what the big deal is – the computer works now, it should keep working even without updates. True, it may work, but you are exposing yourself to potential cyber attacks. Plus – do you have cyber insurance? If not, you should! If you do, read the policy and find out what the insurance company has to say about running an unsupported, or un-patched, operating system.
I’ve been in contact with my clients about upgrading, and it’s kept me busy for the last few months. Some people choose to do an in-place upgrade, others choose to replace the computer with a new one. A new computer gives a nice boost in performance, plus of course, you get Windows 10 in the process.
Some clients still have a few systems running Windows 7. If you are running my remote management agent, I will be in touch. If you are not, please reach out to me and we’ll get you up-to-speed.
