Microsoft support for Windows 7 to end soon
Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 in 2020. Microsoft will issue a final security update on January 14, 2020. After that date, no security patches will be provided for Windows 7. Machines should be upgraded to Windows 10 no later than March 1, 2020.
Continuing to use Windows 7 on your personal devices after this date may make your machine more vulnerable to viruses and other security risks, and it will likely not be compatible with the latest hardware and software releases by other manufacturers.
Consistent with the CSU IT Security Policy, this applies not only to CSU-owned devices but also to personal devices used to access CSU resources — both locally on campus and also remotely via the Pulse VPN (secure.colostate.edu).
