The Office of Information Technology (OIT) is currently working to ensure all OIT-managed PCs are updated to the Windows 10 operating system in 2019.

Microsoft will no longer support Windows 7 as of January 2020. Once Windows 7 reaches “end of life,” computers running Windows 7 may be vulnerable to viruses, intrusions, or data theft. Updating to Windows 10 allows for the most up-to-date security protections and adds many new exciting features.

Technology Help is actively working to transition users from Windows 7 to Windows 10. If you are currently using Windows 7, your computer should be updated at your earliest convenience. Contact Technology Help today to schedule your upgrade.
