A Message from your Computer Guy with a Bow Tie.

All good things must come to an end, even Windows 7. After January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or support for PCs running Windows 7. So what are your options…

1) Buy a new computer with Windows 10.
2) You can purchase a copy of Windows 10 and upgrade your PC so long as it has the basic requirements.
3) If you have Microsoft Office 365 Business you can upgrade your Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 for free.

You can continue to use Windows 7, but once support ends, your PC will become more vulnerable to security risks. Windows will operate but you will stop receiving security and feature updates. Support for Internet Explorer on Windows 7 devices will also be discontinued on January 14, 2020.

How do you know if you have Windows 7? Look in the lower left hand corner of your computer.

White Microsoft Flag = Windows 8 or 10
