Reminder: Microsoft Windows 7 support ends on 14 January 2020

Wed, 8 January 20

Microsoft will end their support for the Windows 7 operating system on 14 January 2020. After this time Microsoft will no longer release software or security updates for the Windows 7 operating system. If you continue to use Windows 7 after support has ended your equipment may become more vulnerable to security attacks and viruses putting your UCD account and information at risk.

IT Services recommend that any networked PC has a supported operating system such as Windows 10 installed as outlined in the Acceptable Usage Policy. IT Services will cease support of any PC or Laptop running Windows 7 after 14 January, until the operating system has been upgraded to Windows 10.

We will continue to communicate on this issue over the coming months. More information on how this affects staff running Windows 7 and options available can be viewed here.
