Updates Are Coming. Is your computer ready?
Windows 10 computers will be receiving the next version update 1909 beginning with the November update cycle, starting November 12. It's not likely your computer will try installing 1909 on the 12th, but you should see it within the first month. If you've paused updates nothing will happen until after the pause date.
Be sure your Windows 10 computer already has version 1903 installed, which should have happened sometime between last spring and now. To check your current version, type the word about in the "Type here to search" box, then click on About your PC. Look under Windows specifications, then version. If it's anything other than 1903, check for updates and let the update start.
If your computer is still using Windows 7 it will still receive security updates until January. After then there will be no further Windows 7 updates and you'll be on your own to protect your computer, your data and your identity from security issues. Adding more (third-party, paid or otherwise) security won't be the answer. Upgrading to Windows 10 or replacing the computer if it's more than 3 years old is the next step.
I'm doing price, specification, and availability surveys on new equipment almost every day now. Prices and availability change almost by the hour. If you'd like current information on what's involved in replacing your computer contact me anytime.
