Upgrade to Windows 10

Upgrade to Windows 10

Microsoft Windows 7 is quickly coming to it's End of Life. While that doesn't mean that your computers will stop working or become obsolete, it does mark an important shift and new risks to your business network.

WHAT RISK?

So what does "End Of Life" mean? It means that Microsoft has stopped updating your Windows 7 operating system.

New feature development for Windows 7 was stopped January 13, 2015, putting the software on extended support.  Extended support ends on January 14, 2020.

That means from that date forward, as new exploits, bugs, and issues that arise, they will not be patched, leaving your computers open to attack from hackers, from malware and may become incompatible with new software.

NEW FEATURES

VIRTUAL DESKTOPS

Virtual desktops are maybe the most interesting new feature in Windows 10.  They allow you to group your open windows into different screens to help you focus on the task at hand, while still having easy access to everything you need.

THE NEW START MENU
