If you use a computer or laptop, you have a Windows operating system, then this news is important for you. Microsoft has now made preparations to stop supporting Windows 7. Its support will also be discontinued in the same way as Windows XP and Vista. (Windows 7 support end date 2020)
Most computers and ATMs used in the country may become unsafe by the end of this year. Most of the computers used in the country’s offices and homes work on the Windows 7 operating system. This means that the company will no longer remove any security updates for the Windows 7 operating system. In such a situation, if you want to upgrade your laptop or personal computer, then you have one year left.
Microsoft announced to stop Windows 7 support
Let me tell you that Microsoft stopped providing main stress support for the Windows 7 operating system in early 2015. But the company continued to extend support for this. Now Microsoft is also going to discontinue extended support for this operating system. Because of this, no security patch or update will be available for the PC or laptop which will have this operating system. In June last year, Microsoft discontinued official forum support for Windows 7. People used to take their problems on this forum and experts used to say its solution.
Microsoft will not provide support for Windows 7 from January 14, 2020, onwards, exactly one year from now. That is, you will not get updates. These updates also include security fixes and patches that protect the computer. However, you will get support when you give money. Significantly, Microsoft introduced Windows 7 on July 7, 2009. After 7 Windows 8 came, then Windows 8.1 came and after this, on July 2015 the company brought Windows 10. Now the company will sell Windows 7 Extended Security Updates and for this, you will have to pay every year.
This will be because the enterprise users have been using this operating system for a long time and it will not be easy for them to remove it even further. Common users will not get updates. That is, if you use Windows 7 even after the scheduled time, then you may be at risk. There will be more security loopholes because you will not get security patches. The company has not been providing new features in Windows 7 for a long time.
Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 next year, know what will affect you
US software giant Microsoft has said, “You can continue to use Windows 7, but after the support is over, your computer will be at risk in terms of security.” The company wrote in the blog post that even after the end of user support Windows 7 can use, but they will not get security updates or new features. That is, it will not happen that the company stops supporting and your computer will stop working, then you should not stay in this confusion. According to the company, Windows 7 support can be installed and activated even after it is turned off. Let me tell you that the latest Microsoft operating system is Windows 10 and the company wants people to use it more and more. Windows 8.1 will provide Microsoft Security update to users by June 10, 2023, after which the updates will also be discontinued for this.
Microsoft said that technical support, security updates and non-security updates are being provided in the Extended support for regular consumers. However, laptops and PCs running on Windows 7 operating system will work as before, but Microsoft will not issue any assistance and security updates for these PCs, laptops or ATMs.
Microsoft announced in September last year that the company would continue the paid extended Windows 7 security update until January 2023, but the company would charge a premium amount for it. The company will continue the Extended Security Update for Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Enterprise if users have signed a volume license agreement.
Let us tell you that on Windows 7, 36.9 per cent of computers around the world work. Most ATMs in India use this operating system. In such a situation, the security updates will be closed for this operating system and all these will be unsafe in terms of security. Last year, many computers around the world were damaged due to the virus named Ransomware. After which Microsoft released a security update for Windows 7 and the latest operating system.
