Windows 7 was initially released on October 22, 2009 and as of today Windows 7 will reach its (EOL) End of Life. Many computers, mostly in corporate enterprise environments still run on the ten year old operating system. So what does this mean for the end user?
In short, there’s nothing stopping you from using Windows 7 even after its End of Life, your PC will still work, but it will become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses because you will no longer receive software updates, including security updates from Microsoft. So essentially, your PC will become more susceptible to cyber-attacks because bug-fixes and security patches will no longer be available against any possible malware attacks.
If you’ve not already upgraded to Windows 10 and still have your previous Windows 7 license key you may still be able to update your PC. We perform routine service maintenance on all desktop and laptop PCs at Digitalwork Solutions, so if you need to upgrade then give us a call (832) 288-3825 or send an e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
