PC users turn to must-have Windows 10 upgrade as Windows 7 as end of life nears

MICROSOFT fans are turning their back on Windows 7 as the End Of Life (EOL) deadline approaches, with most opting to upgrade their PC to Windows 10 to get the latest security and feature updates.

Windows 7 End Of Life 1224189

Windows 7 users are turning their backs on the trusted desktop operating system as the deadline for support from Microsoft looms in a matter of weeks. For those who don’t know, Windows 7 end of life lands on January 14, 2020. After that date, PC owners running the desktop operating system will find themselves at an increased risk of being hit with malware.

That’s because Microsoft will no longer be actively rolling-out updates or patches for Windows 7. So, any glitches that are causing problems with your PC, incompatibility issues with other hardware in your home, or dangerous malware released by cybercriminals to steal your credit card details will not be fixed by the Redmond-based company. To ensure your machine is getting the latest security and software patches from Microsoft, you’ll need to be running an operating system that’s still supported by the company – namely, Windows 10.

 

Microsoft has been actively warning users about the perils of persisting with Windows 7 in the coming months. And it seems the warning is having an impact on PC owners.
