Windows 7 is broken…….
……or is it?
The question most people are asking about Windows 7 is “Will my computer stop working now it is out of support?”
The simple answer is NO.
But should you still continue to use Windows 7?
The correct answer is also NO.
Even though it will still work and do everything it always did, it no longer receives security updates. As time goes on it will become more vulnerable. Therefore, your online activities become less secure.
Banking, shopping and any other financial activity will become riskier over time. These sites may also stop you logging in to them at some point. This happened to Windows XP and Vista users when their support ended.
When security loopholes and vulnerabilities in Windows are found, they will NOT be fixed in Windows 7 any longer. Windows 8 & 10 will get fixed. Therefore the sensible option is to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Do this before you encounter any problems or get infected with malware or ransomware.
My advice is to upgrade or replace your Windows 7 computer as soon as possible.
