I have a Compaq SG3-110UK Desktop PC with Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.
I have recently received an alert on my PC from Microsoft as follows: "Support for Windows 7 is nearing the end".
The alert also points out .. "While you could continue to use your PC running Windows 7, without continued software and security updates, it will be at greater risk for viruses and malware. Going forward, the best way for you to stay secure is on Windows 10. And the best way to experience Windows 10 is on a new PC. While it is possible to install Windows 10 on your older device, it is not recommended."
I was hoping I could back up my PC and install Windows 10. But as you can see above, Microsoft do not recommend that. I don't really want to buy a new PC; I'm quite happy with this one. Please can anyone advise.

Thanks
Tony Dooley

Ignore Microsoft, carry on as you are, you will just need to be a bit more cautious and not visit too many pron sites. :)
