Windows 7: End of Life

What is this?

As of January 14, 2020 no patches or updates will be developed or released for Windows 7.

What does this mean for you?

The use of Windows 7 after January 14, 2020 will leave your computers, network and data vulnerable to any and all new threats.

What can you do?

There are two options:

1. Update. If your computer is capable of running a newer operating system, we can apply an updated version of Windows. If the machine running Windows 7 is newer than 3 years, we will take a look at the computer and assess whether or not it should be able function with the updated software.

2. Upgrade. If your computer is unable to support a newer version of Windows, you will need to upgrade to a new device. We would suggest replacing any computer that is older than 3 years. In most cases it will make more sense to replace, than invest in updating an older machine with a shorter life expectancy.

Plan Ahead!

Since either option will require time and money, be sure to start planning for these changes ahead of time. If you have multiple machines to replace, we can create a plan to help spread the cost out over the coming year.

Do NOT wait until the last minute. 

Remember: If your system is not up-to-date before January 14, 2020 it will be vulnerable to any and all new threats.

Be proactive.

Schedule a time to discuss your options and decide what's right for you and your business.

We can help you:

  • schedule your transition to Windows 10.
  • budget for your transition in 2019.
  • determine if your computer will support Windows 10.
  • decide which computer is best for your line of work.
  • purchase a newer system.
  • set up new computers.
