After 10 years of Windows 7 support, Microsoft has decided no further security updates will be issued.

As of January 14th, 2020, Microsoft, the developer of the Windows 7 operating system, announced that additional security updates and technical support will no longer be available for home users of Windows 7.

While the operating system is over a decade old, it is estimated to still run on a quarter of all PCs worldwide. Microsoft is encouraging all users still on Windows 7 to upgrade to their latest operating system, Windows 10, in order to continue to receive security and functional updates.

The longer Windows 7 remains unpatched, the greater the likelihood that critical security vulnerabilities in the operating system will be exploited.
