Still using Windows 7? You have a year to upgrade

Microsoft will cease support for the operating system next year.

If you’re still using Windows 7, you better get upgrading if you still want your computer secure. Microsoft has already revealed that support for Windows 7 is ending in a year, meaning that upcoming vulnerabilities that will be discovered will no longer be patched.

Windows 7 was launched back in 2009, and gained a decent review especially after the craziness offered by Windows Vista. It was unfortunately followed by Windows 8, which also got negative reviews, prompting some to retain Windows 7 as their primary operating system.

While there’s a good chance that everyone will still be using Windows 7 after January 14th. 2020, Microsoft is strictly reminding users that critical fixes and security patches will no longer be rolled out to the platform. You can still use Windows 7 is you like, but your PC is no longer secure.

The best option at the moment is to upgrade to Windows 10, which fortunately has been receiving worthy updates since its release. More features are added to the operating system month after month without slowing computers down or even requiring crazy system specifications.

Are you still using Windows 7 on your computer? Would you be upgrading? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
