Windows 10 for private computers
Microsoft stopped providing safety updates and patches for the Windows 7 operating system in January 2020. Using a computer with Windows 7 or any older operating system involves safety risks. As student, you have the opportunity to download Windows 10 to your private computer using MinIT.
Using an operating system that no longer receives safety updates or patches involves a significantly higher risk of being hit by cryptoviruses or other malware than using a newer version that is still receiving safety updates and patches.
We recommend that you update your private computer to Windows 10 in order to ensure a high level of security. Students can download Windows 10 from “Applications” at MinIT.
