When this happens, it's open season for viruses and malware on Windows 7 laptops and PCs - Microsoft will not issue protection patches. They'll only protect Windows 10, the current system. In Ireland, around a third of PCs use Windows 7. This includes business and public sector machines. It includes hospitals, schools, utility companies, tax offices and government departments. Even though it takes a year for a large state body or enterprise to migrate from Windows 7 to Windows 10, many of these organisations look likely to miss the January 2020 deadline. When they do, taxpayers (or shareholders) will then have to pay thousands, or hundreds of thousands of euros, to Microsoft in special 'extended support' security fees if they don't want to be sitting ducks for malware attacks. Microsoft won't officially yet say what these fees are. But the company is reportedly briefing its enterprise customers at present, details of which have leaked. And the cost looks a little scary.

A NEW budget store is set to flood the high street within months, as Five Pound World takes over the retail spaces left vacant by Poundworld. But what is Five Pound World and how does it differ from its failing predecessor Poundworld? We take a look. What is Five Pound World? Just as the name suggests, the new Five Pound World stores will be selling all their goods for just £5. The store aims to take over all the retail spaces left empty by Poundworld, which went bust in June with the loss of 5,000 jobs and 335 stores. The discount chain is the brainchild of Dev Singh, managing director of Opium Group, a firm describing itself as "trading in various sectors all over the world." While everything in the store will cost just a fiver, there are plans in the pipeline to sell cheaper products in multi-buy deals at the same price point.
