The Windows Guru is getting bigger! Nilpo.com is in the process of being rebuilt into a larger, more robust Windows and Windows Scripting reference site. As a part of these upcoming changes, the Ask the Windows Guru blog here at Nilpo.com will be moving to a new domain that will feature full Windows references, documentation, tips and tricks, tutorials, downloads, and more along with all new, great content from the Windows Guru. The new site will focus on Windows Scripting, system administration, and some web related content. The site will also be host to a new set of forums for Windows Help, Windows Scripting, Office Automation, ASP help, and other Windows-related topics.
The new site will be undergoing a lot of changes throughout this transition period, but the new Windows Scripting Forums are already live and ready for use.
On January 14, 2020, the same will be true for Windows 7. Even if people discover huge security holes that affect Windows 7, Microsoft won’t issue you security updates. You’re on your own.
Sure, you can run antivirus tools and other security software to try protecting yourself, but antivirus is never perfect. Running software with the latest security updates is important, too. Antivirus is just one layer of defense. And even security programs will gradually drop support for older versions of Windows. If you happen to need help you need to contact IT support, and the San Antonio managed IT services are replacing full time IT workers all across Texas so the first thing you need is to contact them to manage your issue.
Microsoft will keep making security updates for Windows 7, even though you can’t get them. Large organizations can sign “custom support” contracts to keep getting security updates for a period while they transition to a new operating system. Microsoft ratchets up the price going forward to encourage those organizations actually to move to a new version of Windows. The same thing happened with Windows XP.
