Windows 7 Support will End on January 14, 2020.
End of support means after 14 January 2020, the technical assistance and software updates from Windows Update which would help protect your PC will no longer be available for the product.
If you still use the Windows 7 after End of support, the PC will work but it becomes more vulnerable to security risks and viruses due to the lack of security updates.
So, let us examine the various options for Customers who want to continue using Windows 7:
1) Extended Security Updates (ESU) for Windows 7
Anyone keen to continue using Windows 7 will soon have to apply for extended support. Windows 7 Extended Security Updates (ESU) are good for companies that do not want to switch to Windows 10 or will not manage migration by the end of support date and therefore require a transitional solution. The Extended Security Update is available from April 1, 2019. ESU will also support Office 365 based on Windows 7 during this period. The offer applies to the Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate and Windows 7 Enterprise versions.
2) Upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10
After January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or support for PCs running Windows 7. Now is the time to upgrade to Windows 10.
(For most Windows 7 Users, moving to a new device with Windows 10 will be the recommended path forward.)
Along with Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 & 2008 R2 support ends in 14 January 2020.
