Here's a sneak preview of our latest ALERT email which comes out soon. Lucky you :)
If you have Windows 7 it's time to strongly consider upgrading before it becomes a security risk.
In January 2020 Windows 7 will reach end-of-life which means they won't be fixing any bugs in the system. Of specific concern is they will no longer be patching security flaws and exploits. This won't immediately cause you trouble, but as time goes on, secure internet sites that require a login (e.g. banking, TradeMe etc) won't be happy with an unpatched system and will not let you log on any more. Software won’t be developed or updated on an unsupported system (this has already started happening). Additionally, your free anti-virus will stop too (MS Security Essentials) and third party AVs (AVG, Trend, Avast etc) will shortly discontinue free versions for Windows 7.
