No Windows 7 updates for a month?


[link to this post]
 
Has anyone else noticed that there have been no W7 updates for more than a month? The 10 optional updates I have received seem aimed at developers and have features I don't need.

Such a change from the end of last year when W10 downloads for our two PCs hogged my bandwidth for a couple of days.

Looking here there haven't been any since the beginning of March https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security...

That ties with my logs: last updates installed 10/03/2016. It just seems odd after the flood of updates earlier in the year and I wondered if W7 had been forgotten in all the W10 razzmatazz.

I did try W10 for all of half a day before I tired of the gimmicks, driver problems and incompatibility with older programmes and went back to W7. Those who object to Microsoft telemetry/data mining/spying will probably know about Safer Networking's generous gift of Spybot, if not it's here

You only get security updates for Windows 7, and you would hope by now that most vulnerabilities have already been taken care of.

I just installed win xp sp3 on my ancient laptop and there were 105 updates. You would have thought there were still some holes in W7.

Those were updates since SP3, not recent updates. If you installed a new copy of Windows 7 you would also get a huge number of updates.

OK, spoke too soon! Just triggered them.

Only 1 real Win 10 update; rest misc. or Office.

I've had two new builds since then, with some really interesting features.
