If you still use Windows 7, you are far from alone. In fact, nearly 40 percent of the world’s PCs still run Windows 7. While it has already been widely publicized that Microsoft will end its support for Windows 7 in January of 2020, there is a lesser known detail that Windows 7 users need to pay attention to. This detail, according to an itnews.com article, is whether or not you have security updates enabled for your system.
If you are regularly blocking Windows security updates, which isn’t a good idea in the first place, you will not want to block the one that was sent out in March. The reason it is important to not block this one in particular is because if you fail to implement this update by July 16th, 2019, your Windows 7 support will stop in July, six months sooner than the established support deadline.
