Microsoft made a commitment to provide 10 years of product support for Windows 7 when it was released on October 22, 2009. This 10-year period has now ended as of January 14th 2020, and Microsoft has discontinued Windows 7 support.
If you continue to use Windows 7 , your PC will still work, but it will increasingly become vulnerable to security risks and viruses and the riks of lack of support as you will no longer receive software updates and support, including security updates, from Microsoft and so not advisable.
ITP and Microsoft strongly recommend that you use Windows 10 to avoid the above security risks and the situation where you may need service or support that is no longer available.
It might be possible to upgrade your current Windows 7 or Windows 8 PC to Windows 10 depending on the software it’s running and it’s current specification or you will need to replace the PC with a Current one Running Windows 10
ITP are well versed in helping with the transition. Please feel free to get in contact if you would like us to either take a look at your existing machine for the possibility of an Upgrade or to replace the PC and migrate the data.
ITP would like to wish all of our clients a Happy New Year! We hope you all
enjoyed the break and are ready for 2020.
We have hit the ground running with several large projects to get us started
into 2020, including a full IT refresh and a new VOIP phone system being
