Windows 10 Upgrade Worry

Even though official support has ended, it doesn’t mean you have to panic.

However, it means that you must plan your upgrade to Windows 10 today.

The danger

If you don’t upgrade to Windows 10, there are 2 major issues you’ll run into. The first is that you won’t be able to update any of your apps o programs. The second is that you won’t get #Windows7 updates.

One of the main advantages of getting frequent updates is that new viruses are stopped before they can attack your computer.

That safety net is now gone in Windows 7, because of the #Windows7-End-of-life.

Hackers are always seeking to exploit software bugs in the #Windows7 operating system. The impact of no support from Microsoft means that your computer may become a target for viruses.
