Did you know that every Windows product has a lifecycle?
The lifecycle begins when a product is released and ends when it’s no longer supported. This is the point in which Microsoft will no longer provide automatic fixes, updates, or online technical assistance. This means that from this date your PC is more at risk from harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software.
Knowing the key dates a lifecycle end is looming will help you make informed decisions about when to upgrade or make other changes to your hardware and software.
Microsoft have announced that Windows 7 Support will end on 14th January 2020.
That gives you just 2 years to think about changing all of your PCs, or wiping, restoring and reloading Windows 10 on your current machines.
