Microsoft ends free Windows 7 security updates on Tuesday

Windows 7

In a post on its support pages, Microsoft warned: "If you continue to use Windows 7 after support has ended, your PC will still work, but it will become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses".

This means that computers and other devices running the operating system will no longer be able to receive official software updates or critical security patches. So we'de like to advise you to upgrade, as it can still be done for free.

According to a report by Neowin, Microsoft has told them that they will continue to support the new Microsoft Edge in Windows 7 for as long as Google does.

Microsoft promised to support Windows 7 and after January 14, 2020, but only the paid upgrades, which can afford only a commercial organization, the transition to Windows 10 which are hard or technically impossible.

With the Windows 7 era coming to an end, nearly everyone have updated their Pc to Windows 10. "However, most enterprises in the cost-conscious markets of Asia will choose the more cost effective option of upgrading their existing compatible PCs to Windows 10", Nishant Singh, head of technology and telecoms data at GlobalData, said in a press statement. Windows 7 came out in 2009.

At this point, there's really no excuse to still be running an antiquated version of Windows.

Large aftershocks continue to shake Puerto Rico
Hundreds of quakes have shaken the island since the new year, though most were too slight to be felt. Since then aftershocks, majority barely perceptible, have been part of daily life on the island.

The Windows 7 Extended Security Updates will be available until 2023 for businesses of all sizes. A December study, commissioned by Microsoft and carried out by market research firm TechAisle, found that 43% SMBs in India still own PCs that are more than four years old and are running older operating systems.

Unless there is a core change in the Windows operating system, I also do not see this changing soon.

Click the bit that says "download tool now" and follow the instructions (it will ask you to accept the licensing terms).

With a lot of care and cleverness, there is possible that you can survive with Windows 7 after January 14. Users are advised to upgrade to Windows 10.

Fifth, the setup window will ask users if they want to keep apps and files or not. Users should review the details before clicking on "Install" to proceed with the upgrade.
