As of January 14, 2020, Microsoft officially retired their Windows 7 operating system thus it is no longer supported.
What does this mean and how does this impact McGill computers?
Security patches and fixes to any critical bugs will no longer be provided. This will leave computers with Windows 7 increasingly vulnerable to malware (i.e. viruses, cyber attacks) and may pose a risk to data security. Computers that have not been upgraded may be restricted from accessing McGill’s network.
