My Win 7 Pro is still receiving updates, Feb 21, 2020

This morning.

Is every Win 7 user receiving these?

The Blue screen is displaying periodically indicating Windows 7 support has ended.

Well, I do see your attached picture. The only update it shows that was released after 14 Jan 2020 was:
Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool x64 - February 2020 (KB890830)


Other updates you have only just got were released before the end of support, such as:

Microsoft .NET Framework 4.8 for Windows 7 for x64 (KB4503548) Last updated: 1/9/2020
Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3150513) Last updated: 5/10/2016
2019-10 Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB4524752)


End of support doesn't mean the older updates are no longer available through Windows Update. It's not clear why you have only just got those old updates, but I have seen the same thing on some of my systems. Windows Update suddenly finds I'm missing some old updates.


Microsoft have said you will continue to receive signature and engine updates for Microsoft Security Essentials until 2023 (Defender uses those same signature updates, so you will get them even if you don't use MSE). These are to be available to everyone, not just those that have paid for Extended Security Updates. Looks like the MSRT is to continue to be updated for everyone too.

that blue screen with the Win7 EOS notification message can easily be turned off by adding any of the following registry entries in Registry Editor:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\EOSNotify
“DiscontinueEOS”=dword:00000001

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\EOSNotify
“DiscontinueEOS”=dword:00000001

The KB4524752 update only applies to Windows 7 Pro as that update will not be offered to other Win7 editions like Home Premium and Ultimate. The KB4493132 update will be offered thru WU instead of KB4524752 to Home & Ultimate users
