New research from Avast has revealed that more than half (55%) of PC applications installed worldwide are out-of-date, leaving users and their personal data vulnerable to security risks.

The firm's PC Trends Report 2019 found that users are making themselves more vulnerable to hackers by not implementing security patches and keeping outdated versions of popular applications on their PCs with Adobe Shockwave (96%), VLC Media Player (94%) and Skype (94%) being the applications where updates are most frequently neglected.

To compile its report, Avast used anonymised and aggregated data from 163m devices across the globe and the firm also discovered that Windows 10 is now installed on 40 per cent of all PCs globally as Microsoft's latest OS is fast approaching the 43 per cent share held by Windows 7.

However, almost one in six (15%) of all Windows 7 users and one in ten (9%) of all Windows 10 users worldwide are running older versions which are no longer supported by Microsoft.

Shift to mobile computing

Avast's President Ondrej Vlcek explained how users regularly update to new smartphones but are keeping their PCs longer, saying:

“Most of us replace our smartphone regularly, but the same cannot be said for our PCs. With the average age of a PC now reaching six years old, we need to be doing more to ensure our devices are not putting us at unnecessary risk. With the right amount of care, such as cleaning our hardware’s insides using cleaners, optimization and security products, PCs will be safe and reliable for even longer.” 

Laptops, tablets and 2-in-1 PCs running Windows have grown in popularity as PC users now favour mobility over raw power with 67 per cent choosing laptops and tablets over desktops. The shift to mobile PCs has also impacted the most installed applications and Google Chrome jumped to the top of the list in 2018 increasing its share of installs from 79 per cent to 91 per cent in the last 12 months.

The other most popular PC applications were Adobe Acrobat Reader (60%), WinRar (48%), Microsoft Office (45%) and Mozilla Firefox (42%). Despite the fact that Microsoft Office was the fourth most used application worldwide, it is also one of the most out-of-date apps and 15 per cent of users still have the Enterprise 2007 version installed even though it is no longer officially supported.
