Windows 7 support will end in 2020

Microsoft has recently announced the End of Life date for Windows 7. On January 4, 2020 or even sooner for those who decide not to download a recent security update. This means Microsoft will no longer update or support the operating system after this date.

With news that Windows 7 will no longer be supported by Microsoft means there are many users who will need to start considering about upgrading their operating system for their practice computers.

If you’re a practice that currently runs your system on Windows 7, don’t panic. PLH Medical can offer a solution.

What happens next, how will my practice be effected?

When Windows 7 reaches its End of Life phase on January 14, 2020, Microsoft will stop releasing updates and patches for the operating system. It’s likely that it also won’t offer help and support if you encounter any problems.
However, this doesn’t mean that Windows 7 will suddenly stop working. You will still be able to use Windows 7 for as long as you want. But just because you can continue to use Windows 7 doesn’t mean you should.

If you decide not to upgrade, the biggest issue you will encounter is that your system will not be patched for any new viruses or security upgrades. This leaves your system extremely vulnerable.

While you have a number of choices when moving operating systems, for many people, the obvious and simplest option is to simply upgrade to Windows 10, a task that PLH Medical can help you with.

For more details or to arrange your upgrade, please get in touch.
