Windows 7 Impending End of Support

Windows 7 users are starting to see pop-up messages directly from Microsoft (update) telling them that support for Windows 7 is coming to an end.  Windows 7 has been out for 10 years and after January 14, 2020 there will be no more support for Windows 7 (you can read about this announcement on our parent company’s blog ).

The pop-up message from Microsoft reads:

After 10 years, support for Windows 7 is nearing the end.

January 14, 2020 is the last day Microsoft will offer security updates and technical support for computers running Windows 7. We know change can be difficult, that’s why we’re reaching out early to help you backup your files and prepare for what’s next.

Microsoft is not going to force any user to stop using Windows 7, and there is nothing to stop you from continuing to use Windows 7.  But you will not get any security updates or patches for any bugs, issues or future updates (hardware drivers from Microsoft, etc).

If you would like to upgrade to Windows 10, give us a call at 1-800-620-5285 and talk with one of our support specialists to figure out the best way to move away from Windows 7.
