freelance-graphs-laptop-34069

Are you still running Windows 7 on your PC or Laptop?
Did you know that Microsoft is formally ending all support for Windows 7 in January 2020!

While your computer will still run after the end of support, you will be vulnerable to security risks, virus and other issues. If you want to maintain a secure computer and technology environment, you will need to decide how to progress. There are a number of options that you can take.

  1. Nothing – I’ll just hope for the best. This is a high-risk approach and not recommended, you could loose important data and nothing on your computer will be secure.
  2. Install Windows 10 – this is an easy solution although if your PC or laptop is more than 5 years old, you may not have the best functionality or achieve the greatest productivity with the upgraded platform.
  3. Upgrade to a new PC or laptop – this is ideal if your equipment is older than 5 years or out of warranty. You will achieve the best results with a new computer suited to your work needs.
