After 14th January 2020, Microsoft will no longer support Windows 7, which will mark just over 10 years of support. Be sure to make the move to Windows 10 right now.

What happens if I don’t upgrade to Windows 10?

Your laptop won’t self-destruct, but it will stop receiving the following:

  • Feature updates
  • Software and bug updates
  • Security updates or fixes
  • Technical support for any issues

Security updates being the thing you need to take seriously if you want to continue using your laptop as normal. If your computer doesn’t install security updates, you will be at a greater risk of viruses and malware putting your business in a vulnerable position. It’s important you upgrade to Windows 10 as it will provide you with the latest security updates and importantly will keep your data safer.

Our advice is to make the move to Windows 10 right now in order to improve your Cyber Security.

What does Windows 10 have that Windows 7 doesn’t?

  • Device Guard
  • Secure Boot
  • Windows Hello…plus much more…

The above functions offer a higher overall security.

Just like every release before it, Windows 10 is designed to be more secure and more feature rich, giving your workers new tools to be more productive. After a few weeks your team will wonder how they ever managed without multiple desktops.

Although the upgrade to Windows 10 is relatively smooth and painless, we do recommend that you have professional assistance to help with the process. Choosing a technical partner like Complete I.T. to help carry out the upgrade will ensure that any technical issues are resolved quickly and that your team receive hands-on help to get started.
