Windows 7 – End of Life, (Thu, Jan 9th)

A quick reminder note today for everyone. Microsoft Windows 7 operating system is at End of Life on January 14, 2020. [1] 

Yep, that’s Patch Tuesday !  So you get one more update on the books before it stops.

There will be no more free updates to the Win 7 OS for users. While using, installing and activating Windows 7 it is still possible after January 14, it is recommended that all instances be upgraded to Windows 10 operating systems.  If you have the need to extend your support, then Microsoft has a program you should inquire about.
