  1. Offline Security Update for Windows 7


    Good morning Folks!
    I have a single use Windows 7 laptop that almost never goes online (since the OS is no longer supported). Occasionally I want to go online to acquire some information or software.
    Since MS has recently provided a patch for WannaCry ransomware, I'd like to know I'm protected.
    -
    Can I safely go online and install the patch or can I download it on my Windows 10 machine and run it offline on my Win7 laptop?

    Thanks very much! *Smile

    :)

    Defender say potential problem, but nothing highlighted, Safety Scan is clean, what now?

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17466/windows-defender-offline-help-protect-my-pc

    If you are running Windows 10, the above information should help in running Windows Defender Offline.

    "You suspect your PC has malware that might be hiding on your PC, but your security software doesn’t detect anything. In this case, you can start a Windows Defender Offline scan from Windows Defender Settings.

    Go to Settings > Update & security >
    Windows Defender
    > Select Scan Offline."

    Follow the directions.

    ----------

    Those folks running Windows 7 must now hunt for the links to download Windows Defender Offline.

    Hi jdUnionngarden.

    There is a Sevenforums you may wish to visit.

    That said Windows 7 is still supported and will be until 2020. Are you running a version before SP1.

    Please see this official MS statement.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/...cle-fact-sheet

    You most definitely can go online and perform window updates. You will not be infected with this narrow scope.

  5. Thanks very much Ken,
    I moved here from Sevenforums and considered going there for this issue, but was thinking all the top knowledge folks have migrated here also.
    I'm thinking you have proved me correct! *Smile

    I appreciate you giving me the confidence to just run the update normally.

    Best,
