In January 2020, after years of warnings, Microsoft contacted all users of Windows 7 to inform them that support has finished and they would be much safer using Windows 10.
Consequently our Workshop has been busy providing Windows 10 upgrades, usually combined with a faster, more modern hard drive (SSD - solid state drive). Contact us for offer details and customised suggestions.
Microsoft Windows 7 – launched in 2009 – came to the end of its supported life on Tuesday 14th January 2020. Despite Microsoft’s repeated warnings to Windows 7 users, there may still be a couple of hundred million users, many of them in businesses. What should people do next?
To begin with, Windows 7 will not stop working, it will just stop receiving security updates. Users will therefore be more vulnerable to malware attacks, particularly from “ransomware”. We saw how dangerous that can be when WannaCry took over unpatched PCs in the NHS and other places. It was so bad that Microsoft released a patch for XP, even though it was out of support.
The British government’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) told the BBC: “We would urge those using the software after the deadline to replace unsupported devices as soon as possible, to move sensitive data to a supported device and not to use them for tasks like accessing bank and other sensitive accounts.”
