Your Windows 7 PC is out of support

As of January 14, 2020, support for Windows 7 has come to an end. Your PC is more vulnerable to viruses and malware due to:
  • No security updates
  • No software updates
  • No tech support
Microsoft strongly recommends using Windows 10 on a new PC for latest security features and protection against malicious software.

HAAHA What a joke. I haven't used "updates" since Windows 98se and I have never, -NEVER- got hacked or gotten a virus. Okay, I have like four updates currently due to hardware/'software requirements, but that's it.

I just shake my head on how M$ likes to scare people into thinking if you don't have the almighty "updates" (which can and will cause more problems then they're worth) you'll somehow get hacked or magically get malware.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Truth is you'll get malware whether you use updates or not. Especially polymoprphoic malware like ransomware. The trick to not getting malware is to run your browser and/or OS in a sandboxed environment, and scan ALL downloads including email attachments at VirusTotal. Do this and you won't have any issues to worry about.

To sandbox your browser, check out the now freeware Sandboxie. Configure it so that your browser's profile sticks on browser exit. If not configured right your bookmarks, passwords, etc won't stick on exit.

To sandbox your OS there are many programs. One program I liked was Shadow Defender. But doing this is a broad sword approach. And requires a lot of whitelisting of directory paths and maybe the registry. The trick to using a whole OS sandbox is to just whitelist your downloads folder path, pictures, videos, etc. If you have to install something and after you scanned that download at VirusTotal, turn off Shadow Defender and reboot your computer. Now install the program or what ever you need to do so that data sticks and then reengage Shadow Defender and reboot the PC. This OS sandboxing is more meant for a static system that doesn't require many OS changes or program installs. Maybe to granny proof a computer.

The other solution are periodic disk clones using your favorite cloning software and an external USB hard drive of equal or greater size than the hard dive you have now in your PC. I do this and store my hard drives in a $35 dollar fireproof safe bought on eBay brand new.

Anyway, I see this all over the Internet about this scare tactic that updates somehow protect you. They won't. The criticals do prevent things from going arye, but in large part you're wasting your time and I've seen my fair share of update help threads on scores of tech help forums where an update hosed one's computer. When I see these posts I just keep scrolling. I can't help you other than to use safe mode and try to login and uninstall the nasty update. "Update"... yeah.
