Windows 7 Patch End Of Life Soon + Christmas PromoNick Lo
No More Security Updates
When Microsoft stops supporting a version of Windows, Microsoft stops issuing security updates for that operating system. For example, Windows Vista and Windows XP no longer receive security updates, even if substantial security holes are found in them. On January 14, 2020, the same will be true for Windows 7. Even if people discover huge security holes that affect Windows 7, Microsoft won’t issue you security updates. You’re on your own.
Software Companies Stop Supporting It, Too
When Microsoft ends support for an operating system, that’s also a signal to other software and hardware companies. They’ll stop supporting that older version of Windows with their own software and hardware, too. For example, Windows XP support ended on April 8, 2014. But Chrome didn’t stop supporting Windows XP until April 2016, two years later.
New Hardware May Not Work
New hardware components and peripherals will stop working on your system, too. These need hardware drivers, and manufacturers might not create those hardware drivers for your old, out-of-date operating system. Sure, you can keep using your old operating system with your current software and hardware, but you have no guarantees of future updates or compatibility.
More and More and More Security Holes
You and I know that Windows support is ending, and hackers know that, too. Attempts by hackers to find vulnerabilities in Windows 7 will not decrease because they know that whatever they find after January 14, 2020 will never be closed with a patch.
