Microsoft has made two big decisions in the year 2020. While the company first discontinued the support of Windows 7, it has now discontinued the support of Windows 10 for 32-bit laptops and computers. Windows 10 will not work in a system with May 2020 32 bit. The company has said that there should be at least a 64-bit system for Windows 10.
The 2004 version of Windows 10 will require a 64-bit system, while Microsoft will not give any updates for a 32-bit system, although that doesn’t mean Windows 10 already working on 32 bit systems will be turned off. The old 32-bit system will continue to receive all the features and security updates of Windows 10 but Windows 10 can no longer be installed in a new 32-bit system.
Microsoft has not released any data on Windows 10 devices that work on 32 and 64 bit, but according to a Survey of Steam Hardware conducted in April 2020, only 0.20 percent are 32 bit systems with Windows 10, while the number of Windows 10 systems with 64 bits is 86.08 percent.
Microsoft has recently released 113 security patches simultaneously. These security patches have been released to fix bugs in the Windows operating system. By taking advantage of these bugs, hackers could also put viruses in users ‘ computers.
Two of these bugs were in the library of Adobe Type Manager named CVE-2020-1020 and CVE-2020-0938. It was first reported by the website named Technica. Of the 113 bugs, 19 were very serious, while 4 are described as important. In addition, four bugs have been exploited by hackers and two bugs became public.
