Attention: Windows 7 Users!

Mainstream Support for Windows 7 ends today! The day that most of us have been dreading; the end of mainstream support… Starting today Microsoft will stop rolling out new features, put an end to any updates not related to security and are ending free support for it’s 6-year old operating system! But don’t worry yet – All Windows 7 Users (56% of Desktop Users) that are still running Windows 7 can expect Microsoft’s ‘extended support’ until 2020. The standalone software for Windows 7 was taken off the shelves in October 2013 and Windows 7 consumer PC’s stopped being manufactured in October 2014. Do not follow what other companies are saying when it is following Windows XP ‘into the graveyard’ because it isn’t and won’t for 5 years… If you are a Windows 7 user, you will still receive very important security patches during the extended support which means that whilst there are no updates for Windows 7 – you’re system will remain safe and stable and won’t be open to any security attacks from the web. Still not sure on how this works?… You can check out Microsoft’s Support Lifecycle for Windows If you have any questions, please contact us: contact@brokenstones.net or 01543 241 210 and speak to...

Clinics in 2015 – So there if there is a theme you would really like to see us present, then post your thoughts on our Facebook Page!   For those who couldn’t make it this month, We really want to see you at our next I.T.
