Windows 7 loses Microsoft support in January 2020. Find out how much longer Windows 7 is safe to run on your PC and what you need to do.
Windows 7 was one of Microsoft’s best-loved computing operating systems and most of us are still using it.
According to NetMarketShare’s September 2018 data, 40.88% are still using Windows 7 – compared to the 37.44% who have moved on to the latest operating system, Windows 10.
But like all operating systems before it, Windows 7 will eventually reach the end of its life cycle, making an upgrade an absolutely essential task for the safety of your PC.
When does support for Windows 7 end?
Microsoft ended mainstream support for Windows 7 on January 13, 2015, but extended support won’t end until January 14, 2020.
Is Windows 7 still safe to use?
Once an operating system ends extended support, it's very unsafe to use. It means that Microsoft will no longer continue to patch any security threats. Bottom line, without support, you will be more susceptible to the dangers of the internet. What should I do to stay safe? It's time for an upgrade. Windows 10 will continue to have support until October 14, 2025. We suggest you upgrade to Windows 10. Now many of you may be reading this and think "When Windows 10 came out we were told not to upgrade, that it would cause problems." Good news is we are now on Windows 10.4 and they've fixed the upgrade issues. You're good to upgrade now, but always backup before making major changes like this. A Windows 10 upgrade will run you about $200 for the software from the Microsoft Store. Over here at User Friendly we have a trick to get you a free 100% legitimate Windows 10 copy.
