Microsoft has begun to show users’ Windows 7 operating system alert notifications, prompting them to upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10.

Microsoft said last month it would start showing users’ Windows 7 operating system alerts and urging them to upgrade their computers. As it will stop system support by 2020.

Windows 7 will stop system support by January  2020

Some users of the Windows 7 version – according to online press reports – said they were already receiving such alerts that would not prevent them from using the system, but they would be at risk.

They could be stopped by clicking on the “Do not bother again” option at the bottom right of the pop-up notification window.

Microsoft has placed a link to a support page in the pop-up notification window showing the end of support for the Windows 7 platform and the options users must take.

The latest security update for the Windows 7 platform is scheduled for January 14, 2020.
