Microsoft Quietly Cuts Off Windows 7 Support For Older Intel Computers
Concentrating on the most widely used and the latest version of Windows, of course, Windows 10, the tech giant Microsoft now wants all its users to simply abandon older systems in the shortest time and encompass this new release.
Hence, to do this, the tech giant Microsoft has already finished support for Windows XP and now it is simply preparing to also stop supporting Windows 7 by 2020.
While many are hoping this day is slow to come, but, the tech giant Microsoft has other plans and has already begun blocking Windows 7 support on some PCs with specific hardware and older hardware.
It has not been officially stated or implied by the tech giant Microsoft, but the truth is that support for Windows 7 is being done in a subtle and very discreet way, leaving users with no alternative but to upgrade their machines.
The tech giant Microsoft had committed to keeping security updates in Windows 7 by 2020, ensuring the security of this system until the last day of support, but from what has been reported, for some PCs, this commitment has been terminated before the given time.
With the March security update from the tech giant Microsoft for Windows 7 came with a problem that prevented its installation on processors that did not support Streaming Single Instructions Multiple Data Extensions 2 (SSE2).
In practice, this limitation, which was not fixed in the security updates that were released in the following months, restricts the use of Windows 7 on older machines, including those with Intel Pentium III processors.
Now, for the installation of these security updates, the tech giant Microsoft is requiring users to “upgrade their machines with a processor that supports SSE2 or virtualize those machines.”
It is not clear why the tech giant Microsoft does not solve this problem, but the truth is that since launching Windows 10, the company has been seeking at all costs that users migrate to this new version of Windows. This may be one more way to discreetly bring more users to the latest version of Windows.
