Microsoft will no longer update or provide support for Windows 7. This means that Windows 7 users will need to start thinking about finally moving on from their favourite Windows operating system.
Systems that are running on Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 or 2008 R2 will continue to function even after the support ends. However, users will no longer receive the latest security patches and this increase the RISKs of the system vulnerabilities being targeted with cyber threats such as malware infections.
With recent media coverage of cyber incidents, users of Windows 7 should take this seriously.
So, if you still use Windows 7, what should you do? There are a number of things we’d recommend you do in preparation for Windows 7 End of Life, and the first is to consider upgrading to a newer operating system.
While you have a number of choices when moving operating systems, for many people, the obvious and simplest option is to upgrade to Windows 10.
Also, while Microsoft has done an admirable job of making Windows 10 able to run on older hardware, it’s still a modern operating system that might struggle to work well on your old Windows 7 machine. It may be time to do a technology refresh of the endpoints in your company.
