Upgrade your unsupported operating system

Which version of Windows operating system am I running?


What will happen?

Support for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 from the Microsoft side (including Extended Security Updates) ended on January 10, 2023.

Due to possible changes made by Microsoft, ESET might be unable to release fixes and module updates for ESET products for these operating system versions after the Microsoft end of support date.



Degraded protection due to restricted module updates

Due to the Microsoft Entrust certificate expiration on December 8, 2023, ESET will not be able to provide updates to several modules on the affected operating systems after this date. The affected modules in the ESET product will remain on the last version available before this date.

Affected modules:

HIPS support module,

Anti-Stealth support module,

Network protection module,

Firewall module.

If you need to continue using the affected Windows versions, the recommended compatible combination of ESET business products is to use the versions mentioned in the table above. For example, use ESET PROTECT 10.0 with ESET Endpoint Antivirus for Windows 9.1. Due to module updates restrictions, the compatibility of these ESET product versions and affected operating systems is limited after December 8, 2023.

Support for the affected operating system might continue for the other ESET products, but it is not guaranteed. For more information, see the system requirements section in the help pages.
