Windows 7 - is used on circa 7000 PCs and laptops and is going end of life. Devices must be upgraded to Windows 10.
There will be no extension to Extended Security Updates with Windows 7
After 10 years, support for Windows 7ended on January 14, 2020.
If you continue to use Windows 7after support has ended, your PC will still work, but it will become more vulnerable to security risksand viruses because you will no longer receive software updates, including security updates, from Microsoft.

Windows 10 also delivers a better browser.
