From the Microsoft website: “Windows 7 support will end on January 14, 2020. If you continue to use Windows 7 after support has ended, your PC will still work, but it will become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses because you will no longer receive software updates, including security updates, from Microsoft. Microsoft strongly recommends that you move to a new PC running Windows 10 sometime before January 2020 to avoid a situation where you need service or support that is no longer available. “
Third party anti virus vendors such as Avast and AVG will also stop supporting Windows 7 which means that your PC will become vulnerable.
What should you do?
In a lot of cases your computer can be upgraded to Windows 10 for a very reasonable cost. I can supply Windows 10 licences from 25€
What does this mean?
Well, I can take your existing computer, backup your data [documents, photos, images etc] and install a fresh copy of Windows 10. Your data will then be restored and you’ll have a refreshed computer. There is a fixed cost of 90€ for performing an upgrade, far cheaper that purchasing a new computer.
