Windows version support

Recommended Posts

Hi,

How long will old versions of Windows still be supported by the Nod32 Antivirus application?

I still have some Windows 7 and a Windows Home server 2011 (server 2008 R2) running.

Is there a webpage that will list the supported Windows versions? Was not able to find one.

 

Update: In this page, link here, it only describes what Microsoft plans are, not for how long Windows version will be supported by Eset.

 

Kind regards,

Mark

I don't work for eset but sure they only recently dropped xp support so I would presume 7 would get supported for a bit longer although with 7 getting support dropped from Microsoft it isn't recommended to use it after this time

My guess for Win 7 when it is no longer supported by Microsoft is Eset support will parallel that of Win XP. Win XP is only supported in Eset version 9. So expect sometime in the future, Eset new versions will no longer support Win 7. Just when that will be only Eset can comment on.

There are no plans to stop supporting Windows 7. Currently the only requirement is to have SP1 installed and 2 updates adding support for SHA-2 code signing support. However, staying with unsupported OS for which security updates are not released is not safe since unpatched vulnerabilities could be exploited by attackers or new malware.
