TekResults Newsletter (Jan 2020)
Dear Clients and Friends
Another year has passed into the history books and here it is 2020 already! We’re ready for Spring.
Hopefully you have upgraded your computers to Windows 10 by now. If not, we’ll show you how to do it in this newsletter.
Here is this month’s newsletter.
TekResults owes much of our success to our loyal and enthusiastic clients. It’s those of you who tell your friends about us that keep our company growing, and we’d like to say thanks. Just telling someone about us is all it takes. Just let us know you dropped our name and we’ll drop a gift card in the mail for you to enjoy a great meal at a Dante’s restaurant. See… who said talk is cheap!
News for everyone!
We work hard to make our newsletters informative, timely and easy to read (for those who hate tech-speak) and we love sharing what we know with you. If you know someone else who would enjoy receiving our newsletter, please send us their name and email address (or ask them to) and we’ll be happy to include them.
When you suggest someone to add to our newsletter mailing list, we will enter your name in a drawing to win a gift card for one of State College’s favorite eateries.
Windows 7 End of Life January 14, 2020
We have been shouting from the rooftops for over a year, and now the time is here. Windows 7 has finally reached the end of its supported life. This means that since January 14th 2020 there will be no further security or stability patches released for the operating system. Operating systems are periodically retired because as technology moves on, several things can happen.
First, and most importantly, while the operating system might have been perfectly secure a few years before, the inexorable move forward very often means the latest technology and techniques can render these operating systems highly vulnerable to the latest threats.

The source for much of this article is here.
For those of you who would like to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 without purchasing the software or paying someone else to do it for you, you can download and run the Windows 10 Media Creation tool.
The free Windows 10 Media Creation Tool is a very popular utility developed by Microsoft. With this tool you can upgrade Windows 10 to its latest version without a hassle and create a Windows 10 installation USB drive/DVD disc to perform a clean install or to repair a problematic PC.
