Windows 7 Retirement

Microsoft will end support for Windows 7 on January 14, 2020. Unsupported software does not receive security updates, putting your computer at risk. Computers running Windows 7 will become increasingly vulnerable to malware and other attacks after January 14, 2020.  To avoid security-related risks and support issues, upgrade to Windows 10.

Action Items

  • Upgrade by January 2020. If you have not already done so, plan to stop using Windows 7 before January 14, 2020. Thank you to those of you who have already taken action!
  • Or mitigate the risk in other ways. If it is not possible for you to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10, begin planning how you will mitigate in other ways. Options include purchasing extended support for university machines or disconnecting them from networks.
