Windows 7 Support is Ending

 

As of January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or support for PCs running Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008. This means that computers running on Windows 7 will be more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. To avoid these risks, Microsoft recommends upgrading to Windows 10.

At Grove Software, the security of our customers' computers and data is our top priority. The latest versions of our software products were created to help our customers safeguard their information, so we strongly recommend that desktop customers using Windows 7 upgrade to Windows 10 and install a Windows 10 compatible version of our software product.

For additional information and frequently asked questions about our software products, please visit: Grove Software Support

or contact us at questions@radiationsoftware.com.

How do I know if my computer is on Windows 7?

Microsoft has instructions to help you find out which version of Windows you are running:  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/13443/windows-which-version-am-i-running
