End of Support for Windows 7

by

January 27, 2015

What does this mean for you, and why you should upgrade.

On January 13, 2015, Microsoft announced they are stopping mainstream support for Windows 7. Windows 7 is a popular operating system. This creates concern for many.

So what now?

Stopping mainstream support doesn’t mean the end of Windows 7. It means no more:

  • Service packs
  • Redesigns
  • Additional features

But most importantly—No more fixes for viruses & malware!

Microsoft will stop fixing security problems in January 2020.

Should you upgrade?

It’s beneficial to do so if you want to continue receiving mainstream support and up-to-date service.

Does this mean you have to upgrade? No.

Do we recommend it?

Of course. Upgrading your system will improve the security of your I.T.

What are your opinions on the matter? Will you upgrade or stick with Windows 7?

We're Integris. We're always working to empower people through technology.
