What You Need to Know About the Windows® 7 End of Life Product Support, East Northport, New York

If you use a computer that runs on the Windows 7 operating system, it’s important to be aware of changes happening in early 2020. These changes will impact the way your system operates and removes the possibility of getting tech support from Microsoft®. Here is a guide to help you get ahead of these changes.

Your Guide to Microsoft’s Windows 7 Announcement

What was Microsoft’s Announcement?

As of January 1, 2020, Microsoft has announced that it will no longer continue to give tech support for the Windows 7 operating system. Additionally, Windows 7 users will no longer be able to update their computers with fixes or patches. Since outdated systems are at a higher risk of security threats like malware, this could increase the chances of Windows 7 users’ personal information falling into the wrong hands.

What Can Windows 7 Users Do to Get Ahead of These Changes?tech support

With a large number of users still relying on Windows 7, it’s important to get ahead of these changes as soon as possible. To maintain your digital safety and keep your computer system running properly, you have the choice of either upgrading or replacing your computer.

With so many people looking to buy new computers ahead of this change and increasing tariffs on products made in Asia, experts expect the price of computers to rise. If you want to save money on a new computer, you should purchase one as soon as possible. This is particularly important for businesses that have many computers that run on Windows 7, since replacing them will already be expensive.
