This means that companies or individuals who choose to continue using Windows 7 after that will not receive updates, exposing their system to many potential bugs and security issues. However, there is one option. It is an organization that cannot be created using a Windows 7 volume license. You have the option of paying for a security renewal for an additional 3 years to switch times. Microsoft reports that the price of this extra security coverage will increase year by year.
