Microsoft has announced the end of life date for Windows 7 as 14 January 2020. 

After 14 January 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates and support for PCs with Windows 7. If you continue to use Windows 7 after support has ended, your PC will still work, but it may become more vulnerable to security risks.

Why are Microsoft ending support for Windows 7?

Every product has a lifecycle. It begins when the product is released and ends when the product is no longer supported. These products will continue to work but new security and feature updates will stop. Knowing end of support timelines will help keep your business and employees productive and secure.

What should I do?

There are 2 options; replace your hardware, or upgrade your software.

The best way to experience Windows 10 is on a new PC. Replacing your hardware with a new Windows 10 device means it’ll run faster and cost less to maintain.

Of course, replacing PCs can be costly and sometimes isn’t an option for every business. In which case, there are various upgrade options available.

How do I upgrade?

We can provide Windows 10 licenses, help ensure your hardware is compatible and meets specifications, and any software you use daily will continue to work seamlessly after we carry out the upgrade.

How much does it cost?
