Windows 7 End of Life

Microsoft ends support to Windows 7 machines

From 14 January 2020, Microsoft will no longer be supporting Windows 7.

This means that Microsoft won’t issue security updates or support pc’s still running this version. So now is the time to upgrade! Your pc will still work past the above date, but it could be at greater risk to viruses or other malicious attacks. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you upgrade.

The easiest way to upgrade is to purchase a new pc, as these all come pre-installed on the latest version. You will also benefit from the latest hardware capabilities. We offer a range of HP pc’s and will help find the right spec for you. Learn more about our HP Partnership here: https://www.gowerbiz.co.uk/hp/ or call us on 01792 762646.
