Windows 7 Obituary

Posted by Julia W. Rogers Posted on Nov 01 2019

The end of our much loved and stable Windows 7 is near. Microsoft will pull the plug on New Year's Eve. 

This doesn't mean your computer will blow up when the ball drops. It does mean that Microsoft will no longer provide support or security patches for Windows 7. And, one by one, all programs that you use, including Virus Protection Software, Office, QuickBooks, etc. will follow suit. 

If you have Windows 7 on your home computer, you dont' have a lot of external exposure - you're probably okay for a bit - but I wouldn't stretch it.

If you have Windows 7 on your business workstations, the time has come to upgrade to Windows 10. Our firm made this transition in the summer. We recommend using an IT professional to make this as seamless as possible. Don't delay!!
