As of 14th January 2020, Microsoft no longer supported Windows 7. That means no more software updates, security fixes or patches, or technical support. Windows 7 first launched over 10 years ago in October 2009. Windows 8 and 10 have both come along since then. That said, Windows 7 was a solid OS and millions of computers are still running it. So, what do you do if you or your company is still on Windows 7?
The easy answer is: Get Windows 10. There are two ways you can go about that. First, if you’re an individual user and your computer is more than three years old, you might want to consider getting a new computer entirely. But if you can’t afford that right now, or if you’re a business and replacing that many computers is an outrageous expense, the more cost-effective solution is to simply upgrade. Upgrades to the OS only to Windows 10 will cost in the region of £140
