    According to the official news released by Microsoft, Windows 7 support will end on 14th January, 2020.

    ICTO is arranging upgrade of operating system to Windows 10 for all desktop and laptop computers provided by ICTO in order to keep your computer secured.

    In addition, if you continue to use Windows 7 on your personal computer after 14th January, 2020, it will still work but it will become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses, as well as unable to receive software updates from Microsoft, including security updates. To ensure the security of your computer, Microsoft recommends upgrade to Windows 10 for receiving continual security updates in order to protect computers from security threats.
