Windows 8.0 End of Extended Support

All Windows 8 systems should be upgraded to Windows 8.1, and nearly all such computers have the system requirements to run Windows 10.

End of extended support refers to the date when Microsoft no longer provides automatic fixes, updates, or online technical assistance. Without Microsoft support, you will no longer receive security updates that can help protect your PC from harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software that can steal your personal information.
