You may have seen our article a few months ago regarding Windows Microsoft’s plans to end support for Windows 7 on January 14th, 2020. This means that security and stability updates will no longer be available for Windows 7 after this time.
We’re now only four months from that deadline, and, if you haven’t already, it’s seriously time to think about replacing or upgrading your Windows 7 PC. After January 14, 2020, we will no longer support Windows 7 machines because we don’t believe it’s safe to run an operating system that does not receive security patches and stability updates.
Most small business (and residential) customers will have two options to address this situation:
1. Replace the computer with a new computer running a modern operating system. In most cases this will be our recommendation.
2. Upgrade your Windows 7 computer(s) to Windows 10. This is realistic if the computers in question are not more than a few years old.
If you are not sure whether to replace or upgrade your computer, please reach out to us and we will provide a remote courtesy assessment to determine which option would best meet your particular needs, as well as the potential costs.
