Windows 7 – End of Support

On January 14th, 2020 Windows 7 will reach the end of the extended support period. This means that Microsoft will no longer issue feature and security updates for Windows 7. It also means that 3rd party software companies, like Bradley Software, will no longer update their programs for Windows7 nor will they support their programs running on Windows 7. This does not mean that you cannot use Windows 7 after this date, it merely means that it won’t get updated, which could put you at a higher risk of being hacked or getting a virus of some kind.

Here is a link to a Microsoft web page that discusses this information:

We have recently seen a number of customers who are getting new computers or upgrading to Windows 10, which is the latest and most popular version Windows. Here are some tips to know about before you do your upgrade or install your new PC.

  • Always run a backup of the old computer BEFORE you do anything. It is amazing how quickly things can go wrong and without a backup you might just lose everything!
  • You can transfer your Bradley Software license from the old computer to the new one without contacting tech support. But you must do this before you get rid of the old computer.
