I have to make some tough decisions

Since I use Windows 7 and Microsoft support is now ending.
I can
1) continue to us Windows 7 and hope for the best,
2) get a new computer with Windows 10,
3) get a Chromebook and not have to worry about updates and security (however I don't know how to set that up or get it to connect to the Internet)
4) give up being Online

Windows 10 Pro x64 1909 - 18363.657 XP/Vista/Win7/Win8.1 in VM for testing
 
 

One you may have overlooked

5) Upgrade to Windows 10 for free, revert to 7 until you're ready to move on, when you're ready move back to windows 10 using the in place Licence that your initial upgrade created.

The upgrade to windows 10 was at last check not being charged for

As for getting online with Chromebook, don't worry the OS is basically Chrome Browser based so is always online when this is possible
