    Almost everyone on the internet reacting to Win 7 EOL:

    "Oh no! Without Windows updates my PC will be unsafe. :("

    Me (and most of the posters in this thread) reacting to Win 7 EOL:

    "Yes! Without Windows updates my PC will be safe (from Redmond). :D"

    Funny thing is, Microsoft never had to resort to this kind of crap in the past. I never had any nag screens or pop ups when I was running Windows 2000, or XP. Why? Because most of the time there was a product worthy of upgrading to.

    For those who are still hanging on (and with good cause):

    It appears that the Windows 7 ESU Bypass is indeed working.

    https://www.ghacks.net/2020/02/13/it-appears-that-the-windows-7-esu-bypass-is-indeed-working/

    https://news.softpedia.com/news/hac...g-updates-despite-end-of-support-529186.shtml

    As they suggest a backup is created of important data, better the entire system, before the bypass or any of the updates that Microsoft released for Windows 7 are installed. If something goes wrong, it is then possible to go back to the previous version without losing any data.

    Unfortunately I cannot try this myself as I recently installed Windows 8.1. With a few "Look like Windows 7" tweaks and the removal of metro, personally my oldie but goodie Skylake flies along seamlessly.

    I've found these in a list of telemetry updates to avoid, but I don't see them on the list here, so I'm wondering, are they telemetry or not?
