Bug battles

Every operating system is susceptible to bugs, which are identified and fixed by Microsoft. However, with the end of extended support, there will be no more fixing of bugs.

Software incompatibility

Windows 7 does not support all the new apps and software. Therefore, there is a high chance that you will not be able to use them on Windows 7. So to run the new apps and software, Windows 10 is necessary.

Hacker attacks

To prevent hacking and other threats, constant security updates are necessary. Once the extended support service ends, no security updates will be provided by Microsoft. Therefore, to get the security updates, you need to upgrade to Windows 10.
