Windows End Of Life 2020

Windows 7, Server 2008 and Exchange 2010 end of life

Starting January 14, 2020, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008/R2 and Exchange Server 2010 will no longer be supported. While there are many consequences of this, the most important is that any known security issues will no longer be fixed (patched) by Microsoft. We highly recommend upgrading these products to newer software versions. As a general rule, if you purchased a computer in the last 10 years there’s a good chance you have Windows 7 as 1 in 4 people still use Windows 7 (to find out exactly, see the instructions below). You can also find out more information at Microsoft.com.

If you’re curious what version your computers and servers are currently at, or would like to understand the details and pricing of an upgrade, please contact your CTS account manager, or simply aj@cts-companies.com / 248.451.1255.

 

Find out if you have Windows 7:

(1) Click on the “windows” button (bottum-left)

(2) Type “winver” in the search bar, and then hit enter

(3) You should be able to see which windows version you have (if you’re unsure, you can email it to me at sstevens3@cts-companies.com for help)
