    How to download and install the January 2020 security updates


    Microsoft Windows Security Updates January 2020 overview (end of Windows 7 support edition) microsoft-windows-security-updates-january-2020.png

    The security updates are made available via Windows Update, WSUS, and other updating tools and services. Most home users get the updates automatically via Windows Updates; those who do not want to wait for Windows to pick up the newly released updates can run a manual check for updates to speed up the process.

    Note: we recommend that important data is backed up before any updates are installed.

    Do this to run a manual check for updates:

    1. Open the Start Menu of the Windows operating system, type Windows Update and select the result.
    2. Select check for updates in the application that opens. Updates may be installed automatically when they are found or offered by Windows; this depends on the operating system and version that is used, and update settings.

    Windows 7 support will end on January 14, 2020

    Windows 7 support will end on January 14, 2020. After that, technical assistance and software updates from Windows Update that help protect your PC will no longer be available for the product. While you could continue to use your
    PC running Windows 7, without continued software and security updates, it will be at greater risk for viruses and malware. Microsoft strongly recommends that you move to a new PC running Windows 10 sometime before January 2020 to avoid a situation where you
    need service or support that is no longer available.

    Microsoft Increases Windows Vista & 7 Consumer Support to Ten Years

    Redmond-based software giant Microsoft Corp. has recently updated its support policy for both Windows Vista and Windows 7 and will be offering extended support to the consumer versions of the two operating systems.

    Previously, Microsoft provided 5 years worth of 'mainstream support' for consumers while only businesses got an extra 5 years of extended support. Now, all Windows users will be able to get security updates for 10 years after the operating system's release.

    As a result of the policy change, Windows Vista's consumer support was extended to April 11th, 2017. Windows 7 support will end on January 14, 2020.
