WINDOWS LIFECYCLE SUPPORT
In January 2020 Microsoft will stop providing extended support for Windows 7 which is currently being used on over 41% of all PC's.
What does that mean to me? In less than 18 months from now Windows 7 will stop getting security updates to patch vulnerabilities and known exploits.
In real terms Windows 7 will quickly become insecure making it extremely vulnerable to attack, exploitation, data theft and viruses.
Sarala Computers are a registered Microsoft Refurbisher. This means that we can take your Windows 7 computer and upgrade it to Windows 10 for £159.00 including VAT.This Price will be per Machine and will include a new Windows 10 Pro operating system and licence.
Please note that before we can upgrade your device, we will need to undertake a review to ensure that it is Windows 10 compatible.
On the 8th April 2014, Microsoft started ceasing all support for Windows XP computers and will do the same for Vista computers in less than a years time.
Up until then Microsoft had been releasing fixes, updates and patches every week to ensure that your computer continues to run correctly. These updates have now finished, this means any new security holes or exploits will not be fixed and we expect Windows XP to be maliciously and deliberately targeted by viruses, malware and scammers.
We can help you upgrade your existing computer to Windows 10 or supply you with new or refurbished hardware. We can also help with the tricky task of transferring your documents, emails and programs to a new computer.
Nearly all Windows XP and Vista computers are now at least 6 years old, so now is the time to think about upgrading or moving to a newer platform. As Microsoft Partners we can supply Windows 7, 8 or 10.
Are you prepared for the change? Without critical Windows XP and Vista security updates, your PC will have a much higher chance of harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software which can steal or damage your vulnerable data and information. Not even your anti-virus can fully you protect you on Windows XP or Vista.*
The risk of system failure and business disruption could rapidly increase due to the end of support, lack of supported software and the increasing age of hardware running Windows XP and Vista. When problems arise, online and phone-based technical support will no longer be available to assist you or your I.T partner.
