Windows Updates

It is after 1/15/2020 and I am still getting Windows Updates. I thought that had come to an end or is something going on I don't know about.

Obviously if you do not use your system everyday, then updates will be delayed until the system is "on" and in a suitable state to be updated. There is also a Microsoft distribution system to factor in, not all systems are scheduled to be updated at one time. All updates are "rolled Out", if only to give a chance to see any major issues develop.

The updates of the 15th Jan 2020 are the final set issued to all Windows 7 customers, there are some large businesses that have the option to pay for updates for a further three years. there is a slight chance that general updates may be released to all users if something really serious should occur in that three years ( as was the case with one incident with XP), but nothing is planned at this time

First off I do run this PC everyday and I was surprised this morning when I got the notice the Updates were available, but I told it to install the updates. A few minutes later, it said the updates were installed.


BTW those updates were dated 1/18/2020.

Office and MSE (definitions only) are the two items that are still supported at present that could have generated their own updates, that I am Aware of
