Well im in for a surprise, i haven't play 888 for a while and now i don't know what to expect or where to download the new software from, since i have an acc. with them with some coins still on it Big Smile
Btw maragatero u said in the previous post u have 3 Pc`s with 3 Windows OS, u said windows 7,8 and 10, my suggestion to you, if all 3 PC`s are same (meaning spec. wise) sell 2 PC`s with the 8 and 10 OS, and just keep the 7, all u need is windows 7 Ultimate with service pack 1 and you are set Big Smile

Support for Windows 7 is ending

All good things must come to an end, even Windows 7. After January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or support for PCs running Windows 7. But you can keep the good times rolling by moving to Windows 10.

Yes, and this is the bad news, for all the ones like myself and many others that i know,
who decided to keep windows 7 when they were offering free upgrade to windows 10.

Sites like 888poker are offering one of the best software in my opinion.
And besides some glitches, or problems from attackers, that some times brm members are reporting here, which they always fix, then it comes to everyone's hardware and software using, when it comes to problems.

Depending on what you do with a computer, you want the software to be up to date.
When you move money with it, or you play poker for example,
you do not want to use an old software with no security updates.
Poker sites like 888poker doing all their work around these systems.
Would you blame 888poker for some security issue you may experince,
because you are playing in a computer, that hasnt been updated for ages? Smile

As mober pointed out, your system will be vulnerable without security updates.

Poker rooms may also stop offering their software on obsolete versions of Windows.

I understand your concerns about updating your system to the latest update, and i also took couple of security measures my self, i have 2 firewalls, one from my OS one from my antivirus software, and also installed couple programs that additionally help me with different kinds of hacker attacks, so far so good, also the P oker sites that i use all have secure connections, and on top of that, the payment site i use like neteller has its own security software which is very very good, every time i want to log in i have to put in the code they send me on the phone (if you dont have my phone u cant get in), and i am aware that some1 can still hack your machine, even sites like 8 8 8 have seen that not that while ago, but if you take some steps to secure your machine, you minimize the chance some1 hacking you, but at the end of the day, we are all vulnerable, if you want to be 100% safe, pull the internet cable off your PC, thats the only way
