The end of Windows 7

 

Many people are still using the much beloved windows 7 operating system for their computers. However, how much longer do we have until it becomes unsafe to run on your PC?

 

 

 

 

The extended support for Windows 7 will be ending January 14th 2020. That means you have a few months to undertake the essential task of upgrading, for the safety of your PC.

 

When an operating system ends its mainstream support, for example, Windows 7 ended its mainstream support in January 2015, it is still safe to use as it enters extended support.

This means that Microsoft continues to patch any security threats; however they will not be adding any new features. Once the extended support ends, that will mean that your PC is now unsafe whilst using that operating system.
