Do you run ESET on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1?


What will happen?

Support for these operating system versions from the Microsoft side (including Extended Security Updates) ends by January 10, 2023.

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

Which version of Windows operating system am I running?
