On October 22, 2009, Windows 7 was
released to the public, and on January 13,
2020, it reaches the end of its extended
support from Microsoft. You may continue
using it, but there will be no more free
updates for this Windows version. In
addition, browsers such as Chrome,
Internet Explorer, or Mozilla might refuse to
open certain websites, especially secure
ones for banks and payments. Newer
program versions may not allow installation
on Windows 7 anymore, including antivirus
programs. For example, Office 2019 will
only install on Windows 10.
If you still have a Windows 7 system, you
can either upgrade to Windows 10 or buy
a new computer with Windows 10 and get
your programs and data transferred. An
upgrade can be "in place." After this is
completed, the system will run on Windows
10 with all data and most of the programs
previously available. I highly recommend
upgrading the hard drive to a much faster
and less fragile solid state drive at the same
time. It is definitely worth the investment!
And you can keep the old hard drive as
a complete backup. Sadly, I've seen a
lot of computers with Windows 10 and a
normal hard drive that process very slowly,
especially during the first 20 minutes after
booting up. Windows 10 runs with intense
hard drive read/write programs that can
slow some computers down to a crawl.
With a solid state drive, your computer
will run much faster.
Overall, Windows 10 offers a much better
and more secure operating system. No
matter how much you're attached to 7,
the Windows 10 upgrade is a must-do
sooner rather than later. Dok Klaus sells
new and refurbished computers, and we
can do a program/data transfer for a unit
you bought somewhere else too.
If you have questions or need help with
your upgrade to Windows 10, please
contact me at Klaus@DokKlaus.com.
