Will a Clean Install of 7 after 01/14/20 be possible?

If I needed to reinstall 7 on April 11, 2020, will I still be able to download Updates that were released prior to 01/14/2020?

Hi

and further, i asked Brink to pin both W7 updaters to this sub forum

So after the last updates, the 2 final up-to-date versions will be prominantely displayed

This is so much appreciated.
I have 3 Win 7 workstations, 2 of which went belly up just before the end-of-life. So I'm resurrecting and will have to install updates once I have them ready to go. Then they all 3 go off the Internet for the rest of their days.
They are the reason I found this forum, so thank you all for the excellent guidance found in these threads!

Over on Ten Forums a member reported turning on an old Vista machine that hadn't been used for years. It promptly downloaded hundreds of updates it had missed out on. So if Vista still can get all its old windows updates, Windows 7 should be able to for years to come.

Sorry, but I don't think that WU is the best way to install updates on a Win 7 fresh install as it also install a lot of junk, telemetry and spy. Better turn WU to never and use Simplix or Dism++
Run WU manually only to find updates to Office etc

Is there any guide on how to use it or does it simply run as any installer?
