Microsoft in a blog post has confirmed that users with early versions of Windows 10 will be receiving upgrade pop ups from the company very soon. The pop ups will be a warning for users to upgrade their operating system to the Latest Windows 10 Creators Update version.

The Early version of Windows 10, the company says will not be receiving any security updates after they reach the end of service point. The company says that to ensure the security of the computer users are advised to stay up to date which will help them in not being effected by the malware and other malicious viruses.

This move has been opted by the Redmond Giant after the recent WannaCry ransomware attack that hit over 200,000 PCs around the world, which were mainly the early version of Windows. However users with Windows 10 Installed remained unaffected by the Ransomware attack.

The company states: “In each Windows feature update we build the latest security technology deep into the operating system, providing defense-in-depth features that prevent entire classes of malware from impacting your device. In each monthly quality update, we add another layer of security, one that tracks emerging and changing trends in malware to make up-to-date systems safer in the face of changing and evolving threats.”

The company plans to notify users who are still running early versions of Windows 10 to upgrade to the latest version release since lot of PC users ignore the new update and put their PCs at risk of malware and viruses.

The company in its Blog Post has also reminded users that the First version of Windows 10 is at end of service and users can still use this version but it will not be receiving any new monthly quality update containing protection from security threats.

The company also stated that though it wants users to upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10, the upgrade will not be forced upon the users and will be left as a choice to the users to upgrade when new releases are ready for their PCs.
