What does end of support mean?

As of 14 January 2020, your computer running Windows 7 or Server 2008 will still function but Microsoft will no longer provide the following:

Technical support for any issues

Software updates

Security updates or fixes

While you could continue to use your PC running Windows 7, without continued software and security updates, it will be at greater risk for viruses and malware.

Going forward, the best way for you to stay secure on Windows 10. And the best way to experience Windows 10 is on a new PC. While it is possible to install Windows 10 on your older device, it is not always recommended.

We can quote for free on the options to upgrade to Windows 10, first of all we have to make sure your computer will run Windows 10, as in some cases Computers hardware will be too old, or not be powerful enough, and may require more RAM memory or a new hard disk drive, in many cases a fast solid state drive will transform an older computer.

If you need a new computer with Windows 10 , or Server with Server 2019 we can quote for this, we do not just sell a box and let you get on with it, we set it up with the latest updates, and with your choice of software, anti virus etc, copy over your data, install it at your home or business, and give full on site support.
