Stay secure and move to Windows 10
On Oct. 22, 2009 Windows 7 is reaching its “end of life,” at which point the software and security updates, as well as technical assistance, will no longer be available. Out-of-date operating systems create a substantial security risk. To mitigate that risk, all computers using Windows 7 operating systems must be upgraded to Windows 10 by Jan. 14, 2020.
