Microsoft to Discontinue Million Support of Computers That Run on Windows 7 #article

Microsoft will end support for Windows 7 beginning today Jan 14. That means it won't provide consumers with more security upgrades or security fixes to stop cyber attacks.

Though you can continue to use your PC running Windows 7, it will be at higher risk for viruses and malware without continued software and security updates, "Microsft wrote on its website." In addition, Microsoft's customer service will no longer be available to support Windows 7 in technical terms.

Microsoft has indicated that people who still use Windows 7 can either update to Windows 10 if their machine isn't older than three years, or purchase a new machine. An update to Windows 10 would cost $139 for a single device.

Net Applications found that as of December about 32.74 percent of all laptops still work on Windows 7, while Windows 10 is operating on over 900 million machines.

Latest computers have improved hardware which helps to quickly run computers while supporting advanced software but can be slowed down by upgrading to new software on an older system. Windows 10 brings new features like the latest security solutions including facial recognition and fingerprint recognition to log in that your old computer does not support it.
