The Clock is Ticking on Microsoft Support for Windows 7

  by Support Specialist Ann Monnens

 

As you plan software and hardware updates for 2019, be aware that after 10 years, Microsoft’s support for Windows 7 is coming to an end on January 14, 2020.

 

When Windows 7 reaches end of support on January 14, 2020, your computer will still function, but Microsoft will no longer provide the following:

  • Technical support for any issues
  • Software updates
  • Security updates or fixes

Without continued software and security updates, it will be at greater risk for viruses and malware. Microsoft recommends the best way for you to stay secure is on Windows 10.

Once Windows 7 is no longer supported by Microsoft, HIMSA will not include the Windows 7 operating system in our module certification and testing procedures.
