When they finally dumped Windows XP last April, Microsoft left many users struggling to upgrade. And now, businesses especially feel the heat from looming malware threats. For this reason, you see migrations aplenty to Windows 7, which is the last haven for (formerly) steadfast XP users.
With the release of Microsoft latest, Windows “Threshold”, slated for January next year, upgrading your XP system is imperative, if you have not done it yet. The EOS for XP threw off many companies with surprise, and they were not prepared for a transition to a newer OS in the time window they had. Some corporate users even ended up alternately paying millions of dollars for full-extended support.
Stephen Kleynhans of Gartner has stated that even though the stop of Windows 7 support is not immediate enough for concern, it is imperative that organizations start preparing for the inevitable. This is the only way they can avoid scrambling to upgrade like what they experienced when support for XP was discontinued.
This does not essentially mean that there is a need to move on to using Windows 8. In addition, mainstream Windows 7 support is going to be available until next year, with all security updates continuing until 2020. This means that businesses will have more time to upgrade than they had with XP.
There are two clear ways out of this, assuming you have not installed Windows 8 already.
Windows XP was a universal favorite among operating systems, and businesses and consumers alike savored its usefulness. This is probably why many have held on to it for so long. Consider also that there was a pick of three newer operating systems, which had come out by this time.
Windows 7 is a close second favorite to XP, but when it comes to popularity, it manages to beat Windows 8 by a massive margin. The latter failed to impress, or even placate. Threshold is where the eyes are now. It is getting much the same hype as Windows 8 did, but let us hope it will perform better.Read more »
Windows 7 is the most popular operating system released by Microsoft under the Windows family. In order to execute Microsoft Visual Basic scripts and small Java scripts, there is a Windows 7 component called Windows Script Host. It is this Windows Script Host that helps the Windows 7 computer to process these scripts.
Files that have extensions like .vbs, .wsf and .jse are associated with default Windows installations by the Windows Script Host. However, in order to prevent the users from running scripts that contain harmful codes accidently, some system administrators tend to disable the Windows Script Host. This can be enabled at any time, if you need to run the script that you think is safe and is coming from a trusted source.
Well, given below are some easy instructions from the Windows 7 support team to enable the Windows Script Host in Windows 7.

It’s understandable to panic if you are reading all the posts notifying to upgrade your Windows 7 operating system to a newer version, especially if you just bought the system. However, all these posts are not aimed at individual users like you, but rather aimed at enterprise users for whom the stakes are higher.
So sit back and relax because Microsoft will continue to support the Windows 7 operating system until 2020. However, if you are a business owner, you should give some attention to the latest set of recommendations given out by the technology research and advisory firm Gartner. The Gartner Vice President believes it is the perfect time for corporations to chalk out a strategy for next upgrades in order to upgrade the entire system before the deadline. Contact our Windows 7 support to know more about the same.
Gartner Vice President Kleynhans said, “Microsoft recently ended support for Windows XP and even though the end date was set in 2007 based on a life cycle support policy Microsoft introduced in 2004, many organizations were not able to completely eliminate the OS by the deadline.” He further continued to add, “The end of support for Windows 7 will be January 2020, assuming there are no changes to its current support life cycle. While this feels like it’s a long way off, organizations must start planning now, so they can prevent a recurrence of what happened with Windows XP.”
Kleynhans further recommended to upgrade to Windows 8 because it’s deadline is on 2023 and also simultaneously reducing the number of Windows 7 devices that need to be upgraded. All the recommendations that Kleynhans mentioned includes the ability of the entire corporate to stomach Windows 8 operating system, an alternative not many would be happy with.
The first option, is to adopt practices that will allow smooth transition every time, and to set in place a system enforced by a strict timeline to upgrade the systems without hassles. The second option is to compel the employees to switch to Windows 8 on all new systems. Since this will only extend the timeline by three years, the entire process seems futile.
The final option is to install Windows 8 on only the latest system so that the number of systems which need to be updated will be slightly lower. This in turn will cause compatibility issues in certain workplaces. If you want to know which the best upgrade option of the three is, you may contact our Windows 7 support.Read more »
