NOD 32 coverage for Windows 7


Recommended Posts

We have an older HP desktop running on Windows 7.  Does NOD 32 provide updates/coverage for this so we can continue to use our desktop?

You can continue to use Windows 7, however, make sure that you have SP1 installed as well as Windows updates KB4474419 and KB4490628 that add support for SHA-2 code signing.

However, as time will go on and new vulnerabilities will be discovered, missing patches for Windows 7 will make it more and more vulnerable.

It's not safe to stay with Windows 7 even if you have an Internet Security product running as protection , because as Marcos said , by the time more vulnerabilities will be discovered and used against this operating system and Microsoft won't release anything for it because they have stopped the support , unless you pay for business support.

I believe it's better for you to upgrade to Windows 10. , Or switch to Linux atleast you can still get updates and you can get your Ubuntu to look a bit like Windows 7.

Even if you feel that your PC won't be able to run W10(It will be able) or that it's invading your privacy , etc whatever the reason is , it's safer and more stable to stay with a system that can get updated.
