Enabling The Windows Script Host In Windows 7

Windows 7 Support

                    Support For Windows 7

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.

Instructions

  • Start the process of enabling Windows script host in Windows 7 by clicking the Windows 7 Start button seen on the lower left corner of the Windows 7 desktop screen. Now the Windows Start menu will be open on your screen. In to the search box that is seen within the Start menu, type Regedit followed by pressing the key called Enter.

Your System Upgrade Just Around The Corner!

Windows 7 Support

      Windows 7 Soon To Be Outdated

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.”

Best Upgrade Option

     Why Upgrade Your System Soon?

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.

Microsoft To End Mainstream Support For Windows 7 Next Year

Windows 7 Support

         Windows 7 Support Info

If you think that the Windows XP end-of-support was the biggest matter of concern this year, wait for more – Microsoft has something bigger in store. Recent reports say that the free Windows 7 support will be ended as early as by January next year. Shocked?

It is hard to believe that in less than a year after Microsoft pulled out the plug of Windows XP, the official tech support for Windows 7 will cease to exist. This news is difficult to digest if you are a Windows 7 user or an ardent fan of the popular operating system, but let us analyze what the company means by this “end of support”.

This end of support actually refers to the date when the software giant will no longer provide things like automatic fixes, updates, or online technical support for the particular product of service. Moreover, when the support for Windows 7 ends, your system will no longer receive security updates that are needed to protect it from spyware, viruses, and other harmful software capable of stealing your personal information.

The end of support for Windows 7 could mean the worst fear coming true for users who find Windows 8 confusing. When the latest Windows operating system was released in 2012, it faced flak and hostile reviews. The online world flooded with complaints regarding the latest Windows OS, and many users had been adamantly determined to keep using Windows 7. These obstinate diehards may very well have to cave in when the support for Windows 7 will officially end next January.

Personal Information

                Windows 7 Support Help

As per Forbes reports, the Windows 7 support end will happen on 13 January 2015. That means that after the end-of-life date, no new Windows 7 Service Packs or features will be released. This is not to be confused with “Extended Support” though. The “Extended Support” for Windows 7 will be available until 11 April 2017, and Windows 7 users will continue to receive some security patches.

So, as long as users of Windows 7 powered systems have a Service Pack, things will be OK until 2017. However, 2017 is not that long for Windows 7 lovers to hold out. It is better to start absorbing the tricky user interface of Windows 8 and migrate before the clock strikes.

You hardly have any other option if you prefer sticking with Microsoft products. There are other free OS options as well, but they may not be as satisfactory as using a Microsoft developed operating system.
