error 404 comment modified grin Computer gurus in the house is it possible to upgrade/update from windows 7 to other versions especially 10?

shocked Not advisable.

Transfer your data on the internal hard-disk to an external hard-disk, format your internal hard-disk, then instal Windows 10. Thereafter, upload your cherished data to your internal hard-disk.

Worked for me ... perfectly!

Hmmm his points are actually valid and backed up with good reasons too. He never said people should stop using Windows 7 devices... He only warned the users to be more careful with it by taking some measures like using security softwares, using latest application updates etc because Microsoft already ended support for the windows 7 devices since 14th last month and will no longer provide technical support to them.


That being said, but who still uses Windows 7 device at this present time though?
I do actually, I prefer it to the newer windows will be getting a new laptop soon though which will most likely come with a newer version sadly.

Metasploit is a framework for penetration testing even the biggest experts in cyber security use and it takes great skill to use which a script kiddie lacks.
Personally i have above average skill in programming (python, C, C++), Linux OS and the command line, add that to a bachelor's degree in software engineering and a CEH version 10 certification from EC council you will agree with me am way more than a script kiddie, i write scripts for sport.

Many West African leaders are of the Fulani descent including
the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari;
the President of Senegal, Macky Sall;
the President of Gambia, Adama Barrow;
the Vice President of Sierra Leone, Mohamed Juldeh Jalloh; and
the Prime Minister of Mali, Boubou Cisse.

They also lead major international institutions, such as
the Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, Amina J. Mohammed;
President-Elect of the United Nations General Assembly, Tijjani Muhammad-Bande; and
the Secretary-General of OPEC, Mohammed Sanusi Barkindo.

I once enroll into cyber security as script kiddie. When I engage in sqli and jscript injection, even xss attack and many newbie penetration shocked. I quit then because I don't have the money to pay for courses in cybrary. But I'm looking forward to enroll into ceh later on.

The responses I have read on this thread, just shows how backwards most of our youth are, in their thinking capacity.

The minister is saying that, to stay protected/defended when online (and when computing with sensitive data that you do want stolen), abstain from Windows 7 devices.

Because Microsoft has officially ended their support for Windows 7. Hence there will be no security updates, which is dangerous.

Because millions of unauthorised entry attempts happen on the World Wide Web everyday.

So, to stay safe, use Widows 10 devices, or upgrade your Windows 7 OS to Windows 10, easily...

Someone is even offerining to upgrade for 10k. When Windows 10 CD is 1K.

Even windows 10 is not secure. Plenty backdoors on windows os same with android os. If you are looking for a 90%+ security of your PC upgrade your operating system from windows to any Linux distro, Ubuntu preferably. But don't try it if you are not a techie geek,else cmd will send you packing. grin grin

It loads fast, gets out of the way and allows me to do my work, I can allow disable the stupid automatic updates that routinely breaks my codebase, plus I am really used to its design and ui, that design and ui was what I grew up with from the days of xp, vista, e.t.c.

So yeah I actually do prefer it to windows 8 and 10.

Yes. Based on your laptop hardware capability. There was a free upgrade offered some years back. Now you have to pay for it.

Empty clout chaser, you're in the wrong place.

Script kiddie check list:
- defining metasploit for no reason - check
- bragging about knowing abc languages when we both you have never written an exploit in any of those languages before - check
- bragging about CEH (a course that teaches how to use ready made tools, hence making u a script kiddie) - Big flag
- calling me a clout chaser when u replied my one liner with a whole wall of text - makes u a kid.

Enjoy your day lmao
