The Windows 7 Extended Security Update program is now available

by Martin Brinkmann on December 02, 2019 in Windows - Last Update: December 02, 2019 - 38 comments

Microsoft will end support for the company's Windows 7 operating system on January 14, 2020, the same day that security updates are made available for the last time for the operating system.

While there are not any official options for home users of Windows 7 to extend support, paid or unpaid, companies and organizations may pay Microsoft to extend support by up to three years. Security company 0Patch revealed plans to release (some) security updates for Windows 7 for free after Microsoft ends support.

When Windows 10 surfaced adoption was dramatically FORCED onto peoples laptops and desktops.

While Windows 10 was delivered in Windows Update, I was on the beta team so I was using it long before the public offering was even made.

Windows 10 has been updated several times as new features galore have been added. So many it will likely choke a post here.

I remember when the UK Royal Navy was faced with moving away from some antiquated systems that the Parliament eventually stepped into fix the problem. I am sure there are some other dinosaurs around.

Re: cant install legacy graphics driver windows 7

Hello, what about going elsewhere with your idiot conversation about win7 and 10, and viruses?

What about old laptops that cant handle win10 properly? Oh thats not even in your little brain, because you expect people to buy better ones immediately right?

And the fact, that win10 is worse in updating drivers, than win7, that i write above? Why would i want top upgrade to a worse opreation system...

And why would using win7 be a problem about viruses?

I used windows xp for around 5 years after its support ended, and didnt get a single virus... All you have to do is not clicking on suspicious links, the rest will be handled by windows or any good antivirus.

So can you shut the *** up and focus on the main driver problem?

Thanks

if your old machine cannot run windows 10, then get a newer machine and trash the old one.

Just don't install software from suspicious sites, and you will be fine even without an antivirus software. I'm fine on Win 7 since summer 2019, and before that I was using Win XP.
