Why Upgrading from Windows 7 Should Be a Priority

Window 7 EOL image

Windows 7 will reach its End of Life (EOL) on January 14, 2020. This End of Life means no more bug-fixes, security patches or new functionality, making any user – personal or business more susceptible to malware attacks. You should be aware that using an outdated operating system makes your computer vulnerable to cyber-attacks.

If you have not talked with us about your plan to upgrade or replace machines running Windows 7, you should do so as soon as possible. It’s not too late, but time is running out fast. Reach out to us at 540-808-2900 Option 2 or jeff@newrivercomputing.com. A very few Windows 7 machines may be candidates for Microsoft's Windows 7 Extended Security Update program—please contact us for details.


Data Breaches are REAL threats
