Microsoft ended support for Windows 7 on Tuesday the 14th of January 2020. This means your system is no longer secure and will become less secure the longer you stick with Windows 7. This is because it will receive no more essential security updates meaning it will be far more susceptible to hackers and viruses.
It also means that the software you run on your laptop or PC will also become less secure as software developers will no longer update and patch software for Windows 7.
In short, if your PC or laptop is connected to the Internet, you MUST upgrade to Windows 10. If it’s not connected to the Internet (rare these days), then you don’t need to worry.
Is your PC or Laptop Windows 10 Compatible?
Older PC may not be compatible with Windows 10, or may struggle to run it. This is because Windows 10 is designed to run on faster computers, and some old hardware may not have compatible drivers that support Windows 10. In this case, we recommend you purchase a new computer that has Windows 10 pre-installed.
Newer computers, from around 5 years old should be able to handle Windows 10. We can assess this for you in our workshop.
Upgrade to Windows 10 for only £55.
If you’re in Dunfermline or Fife, we can upgrade your Windows 7 laptop or Desktop computer for you. For our flat fee of £55, we’ll take care of it for you. We advise you backup your personal documents, photos etc prior to the upgrade, as occasionally the upgrade fails and Windows 10 needs to be installed from scratch.
