"We have company, even if they have not yet fully moved to Windows 10".

"To ensure users do not fall victim to cybercrime related to Windows 7, users should seek an update immediately to ensure they're supported by a system that is supported with security updates".

The specific end of support day for Windows 7 will be 14 January 2020.
