Admittedly, that is a drop of nine percent since this time last year but it does mean that millions of users are still more than happy to continue using this unsupported software. Unlike Windows 10, Windows 7 is also not being treated to any new features or shiny upgrades.
It’s worth noting that Windows 7 will continue to work for the foreseeable future but Microsoft isn’t pushing out any vital updates or security patches.
That means there is a cyber risk to anyone who hasn’t taken the jump and moved over to Windows 10.
Earlier this year Microsoft warned, “If you continue to use Windows 7 after support has ended, your PC will still work, but it will become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. Your PC will continue to start and run, but you will no longer receive software updates, including security updates, from Microsoft.”
