The company Microsoft announced the imminent end of support Windows 7. Security patches for one of the most popular operating systems in the world will end on January 14, 2020.
As noted in a message on the website of the Redmond giant, after the end of support, the operating system will lose protection against new cyber threats. To inform all users about this, Microsoft released an update containing a corresponding warning. In the OS interface, it will begin to be displayed on April 18.
Windows 7, which came out almost ten years ago, still holds about 40% of the desktop operating system market. Windows 10 managed to overtake the 'seven' in terms of the number of users only this year.
