Have you switched to Windows 10 yet?

We are still seeing many people using computers that are still running Windows 7. I thought this would be a good time to remind everyone that Windows 7 is no longer supported by Microsoft and, therefore, we recommend upgrading your machine to Windows 10, or replacing your computer.
The main reason we recommend not using Windows 7 anymore is because no more support means no more updates, and most updates at the later stages of Windows 7 were for security purposes. No more updates means less security and your machine is more vulnerable to viruses, malware and hacks.
This isn't to say that you can't use your Windows 7 computer, or that your computer will stop working, but if you absolutely can't get rid of your machine, at the very least, we recommend not using it on the internet anymore. Not using your computer on the internet is a tough task to do nowadays, but for your own security and the security of your files and personal information, do not use your Windows 7 computer on the internet.
Your machine will still run if you don't use it on the internet, and you can still look at your pictures, type documents, play some games, etc.
Again, we recommend upgrading your machine to Windows 10, or replacing your machine entirely with a new one.
If you have questions on either of these options feel free to give us a call and we can help determine the best option for you.
