    Windows 7 update to Windows 8.1?

    Hi,

    I have Windows 7 Ultimate and am wondering if I should update my operating system to Windows 8.1 so that I will be able to get all of the Microsoft updates. Or, can I use Windows 7 until 2020 and continue to get security updates?

    What would be the safest thing to do? And Happy New Year to Everyone.

    Thank you.

    You will continue to receive monthly security updates until 2020, so no rush, in fact, I'd probably wait until Windows 10 comes out.
