Windows 7 (EOS) End of Support

DO YOU KNOW?/ The Windows 7 End of Support is now here.
On January 14, 2020, Microsoft has stopped updating or providing support for Windows 7. This decision by Microsoft is not surprising as the Windows 7 operating system, was launched on July 22, 2009.

CAN I STILL WORK WITH WINDOWS 7?



While Windows 7 entering its End of Life (EOL) phase doesn't mean your PC will suddenly stop working. PCs running Windows 7 will still function but Microsoft will no longer provide the following:

  • Technical support for any issues
  • Software updates
  • Security updates or fixes

and this leaves you extremely vulnerable to any emerging threats.

Therefore, it's important that you upgrade to a modern operating system such as Windows 10, which can provide the latest security updates to help keep you and your data safer.

Microsoft is releasing an update to Windows 7 - KB4493132 - which will display a notification reminding Windows 7 users to upgrade to Windows 10 before the End of Life date. This update is optional, but anyone with automatic updates turned on will receive it.



It is strongly recommended to use Windows 10 on a new PC for the latest security features and protection against malicious software.

Kindly refer to the below recommended specification for Windows 10:

  • Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster processor or SoC.
  • RAM: 4 gigabyte (GB) for 32-bit or 8 GB for 64-bit.
  • Hard disk space: 20 GB for 32-bit OS or 30 GB for 64-bit OS.
  • Graphics card: DirectX 9 or later with WDDM 1.0 driver.
  • Display: 800 x 600 resolution

If your Windows 7 machine doesn't meet these specifications you won't be able to run Windows 10; and even if your machine just meets the requirements, Windows 10 won't run that well.
