Windows 7 Support will end on January 14th 2020

Microsoft are ending support on Windows 7 early in 2020. With this in mind we need to make sure you have no windows 7 PC’s or laptops on your network that are accessing the internet.

Windows have stated:

Microsoft made a commitment to provide 10 years of product support for Windows 7 when it was released on October 22, 2009. When this 10-year period ends, Microsoft will discontinue Windows 7 support so that we can focus our investment on supporting newer technologies and great new experiences. The specific end of support day for Windows 7 will be January 14, 2020. After that, technical assistance and software updates from Windows Update that help protect your PC will no longer be available for the product. Microsoft strongly recommends that you move to Windows 10 sometime before January 2020 to avoid a situation where you need service or support that is no longer available.


What should I do?

To avoid any potential issues we recommend that you replace all Windows 7 PCs and laptops that are on your network and have access to the internet, ahead of the end of support date of 14th January 2020.

If you have any questions on how Windows 7 end of support may impact on your business, or if you would like a quote for Windows 10 PCs and laptops, please call your account manager on 01455 247 830 (press 2 for sales).
