Did You Know? Microsoft Stopped Supporting Windows 7 in January 2020


Since its release in 2009, Windows 7 has been a staple in the lives of household and business PC users. In January 2020, Microsoft ended customer support and no longer provides security updates for PCs that have the Windows 7 Operating System. Microsoft urges users to upgrade their systems to Windows 10 for the latest hardware technology and to lessen cybersecurity risk. Companies and individuals that continue to use Windows 7 are more vulnerable to security risks, malware, and viruses.
