Upgrade to a newer version of Windows


As I mentioned at the beginning of the article, mainstream support for Windows 7 has ended on January 13 2015, while extended support will officially end on January 14 2020. This means that, from that date, Microsoft will no longer release the very important security updates that are used to protect the system from cyber threats.

For this reason, therefore, I suggest you upgrade to a newer version of Windows, possibly before extended support actually comes to an end. If you want more information on how to upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 10, the most recent version of Microsoft's operating system, read the in-depth study I just linked to: I'm sure this reading will be very useful.
