Windows 7 End of Life
Microsoft is discontinuing support for Windows 7 effective 01/14/20. That means all PCs running Windows 7 should be replaced by then or upgraded to Windows 10.
The biggest issue with continuing to use Windows 7 is that it will no longer be patched for any new viruses or security problems once it is discontinued. This leaves those machines extremely vulnerable to any emerging threats.
As a general rule, we recommend replacing PCs that are more than three years old and consider upgrading a computer to Windows 10 if it’s 3 years old or newer. We have been busy the last several months upgrading many clients and expect that to continue right through the new year.
