Windows 7 will still be eligible for updates for two years

The 0patch team announced that developers will continue to support the operating system by providing regular security updates to protect against current threats.

It's been two years since Microsoft announced the end of Windows 7. The operating system, which is highly regarded by its users, is still eligible for security updates until January 2023 through the Extended Security Updates (ESU) program.

According to a blog post, "We've decided to continue providing Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 security patches for critical vulnerabilities that are vulnerable to exploits, and we're happy to keep you safe for a fraction of what you've paid for ESU so far,".

Updates provided by 0patch will be installed directly into the system memory, without modifying executable files. In other words, it will not be necessary to restart the computer to update it. To take advantage of it, however, you will have to join the ESU program if it hasn't finished yet and installed the latest updates. Next, you will need to create an account, 0patch and install the free proxy available for download.
