Re: Win7 Gasping, Little Hope...but Wait


It's collusion I tell you!! Collusion!! It's the MS/Business complex!!! MS gives business free OS's to businesses in exchange for them using IE for their chosen browser base. That way when your browser will no longer work to contact your bank or your favorite gaming site, you'll have to throw down some coins for a new OS since you can't update the old OS to the new browser they came up with. Of course you'll also need a new computer since there aren't any drivers for your old hardware. Rats!

In that same vein, some of the web sites I use require a cell phone to receive a security code or else be rejected from logging in. I always leave mine in the car and have to run out and get the code and try to get back before the 5 minute window of opportunity expires. Land line won't be acceptable but a couple of them told me I could call them and wait the normal 15 or more minutes to speak to an actual human being, albeit one from another continent, I might manage to get connected if I answer all the right questions. That's just a fine way to access something that is supposed to be a convenience feature or an enticement to do business with the. Rats! I put that right up there with the sites that lock me out because my caps lock as inadvertently on and my password was rejected more than twice. Double rats!

I have been told that some banks still use XP. In fact a friend told me that he hacked around and convinced MS that his XP was a bank's and he still gets security updates. (don't know if it is true)

Performed my usual manually inflicted check to see if I needed any of the updates they offered. Didn't look like it so I was all ready to get back to goofing off when the pop-up below appeared. What a coincidence, I picked the final day! I though I had them blocked!

Now I'll have to find something else to blow 30 minutes or more at the first part of the months.

Yeah, I woke up to the same screen.

Just as well. Any bugs that Microsoft has not fixed my now, probably don't need fixing.

Maybe if Microsoft programmers are bored, now that they are not working on Win7, they can see if they can fix Internet Explorer. Maybe I would start using it again.

Re: Win7 Gasping, Little Hope...but Wait


I have done some cursory searching, but haven't been able to find anything that tells me whether or not support is ending for existing updates. That is, if I do a brand new Win7 install on a computer, will Windows Update still work to run any updates produced before 1/15/2020? Or will it not do any updates at all?
