Are you still using Windows 7?

Posted on: February 25, 2020

At the end of December 2019 about one-third of desktop operating systems were reportedly still using Microsoft’s Windows 7, including much of the NHS. But after 10 years, support for Windows 7 ended on 14 January 2020. A PC with Windows 7 will continue to work, but Microsoft will no longer provide software updates, including free security updates, so the PC will become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. Information from Microsoft about what this all means and how you can transition over to Windows 10, is available here. You can also find a more objective look at the implications and options in this briefing from the Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action (NICVA).
