Windows 7 Support Ends January 14, 2020. What Do I Do Now?

Did you get a computer from late 2009 through 2012 that uses Windows 7?  As of January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer be making security updates automatically, and many third-party vendors will have dropped support as well. 

Because of the seriousness of this development, many have already made migration plans.  Microsoft will start warning people about this development with a warning message that your operating system is no longer supported.  What can you do?

The Following are suggested options:

  1. Do Nothing
  2. Switch to Linux
  3. Pay for Extended Support
  4. Upgrade to Windows 10
  5. Trade-in your current computer

Each has its advantages, disadvantages and costs.  Wish to know more about these options?  Send me an email, text, or call and I would be happy to share with you what your options are, helping you through the maze, keeping you from harm.
