Are you prepared for Windows 7 End of Life?

Windows 7 is due to reach of End of Life (EOL) on January 14th, 2020, but a large number of the world's computers, most in corporate environments, are still running the nine-year-old system.

Microsoft ended mainstream support for Windows 7 in January 2015, with extended support running until January 14, 2020. If any business fails to upgrade from Windows 7 will be saddened to hear that they will have to pay high fees for further support from Microsoft.

This End-of-Life means no more bug-fixes, security patches or new functionality, making any user personal or enterprise more vulnerable to malware attacks. Microsoft will continue to offer support for the users still operating on Windows 7 to upgrade to its Windows 10 OS, but it will cost money.

There is nothing wrong with continuing to use Windows 7 after its End of Life. You should know that using an outdated operating system will make your computer vulnerable to cyberattacks.
