The deadline is January 14, 2020. At this time, Microsoft is the support for Windows 7 – almost – completely. For users of the old operating system version, this means that they no longer receive any updates – not even for critical security vulnerabilities. This not least makes it much easier for attackers to bring malicious software to their PCs. In the light of this scenario, Microsoft has been steadily increasing the pressure on users in recent months. The remaining users are forced to switch to Windows 10 via pop-up windows. But this campaign has so far only had limited effect.
