support for Windows 7 is coming to an end on January 14, 2020. Microsoft will no longer provide Technical support for any issues, Software updates, security updates or fixes for PCs running the Windows 7 operating system. Computers running the Windows 7 operating system will continue to work even after support ends. However, using unsupported software may increase the risks from viruses and other security threats.
Therefore, BtCIRT recommends users and administrators to upgrade to a currently supported operating system. For more information, see the Microsoft End of Support FAQ.
