End of Windows 7 Support

Did you know that Windows 7 support will be coming to an end in just four short months? On January 14, 2020, Microsoft will be ceasing all security updates and support for any computer devices still utilising Windows 7. While you can of course continue to use Windows 7, you must be aware of the fact that once support for this software ends, your PC will find itself becoming more and more vulnerable to security risks. 

The Windows 7 installation will continue to operate however the security and feature updates that you’ve been used to will stop effective immediately from January 14. The updates you once regularly received, that provided solutions to any vulnerabilities open to awaiting hackers and virus writers will no longer find their way to your PC. This would leave you essentially wide open to attack.

While we’d all love to continue making use of what we’ve grown to love, change is inevitable and with software applications now only being optimised for more recent operating systems, it’s time to accept that change and move forward. 

Do You Need To Update?

Do you know if your software needs updating? Have you found yourself in a Windows 7 rut, awaiting rescue? 

While Microsoft have and will continue to send out reminder emails regarding this Windows 7 news, it isn’t always as simple as clicking a button to accept the new software and subsequent updates. 

In some cases, it may be almost impossible to tell whether you have out of date software at all, without searching high and low through your desktop devices. That’s where we at Capital can help.
