This lady is on deathbed now. I have suffered a lot by not upgrading my windows to 10. WanaCry stole my 12,000+ files from office pc. 

 

And I heard now, another malware is out and is being deployed through emails. The email is sent from export@dhl-invoice.com email id. 

 

Be proactive this time. upgrade your windows before it's too late.

I don't understand,  Windows 7 is still supported by Microsoft and still receives updates.

 

Personally I'll update to Windows 10 when Microsoft have stopped playing with it.

Not only is Win 7 still supported by MS, but also supported by every anti-malware program out there.  Will be till 2020. You didn't backup your data or your HD either. :huh:

Trust me, Windows 10 is not immune from malware. Going to BC's Malware Removal Forum will tell you that. 90% of infections is because of the person behind the keyboard. 

 

Edit: I have been using Windows 7 for years and have not been infected. As a matter of fact, I still run XP and have not been infected using it either.

Same here...although I don't suggest using XP to anyone.  I'm willing to gamble with my own system because I believe that I am prepared (I do backups, have legitimate licenses, and employ adequate system security, and practice safe surfing/computing procedures).
