Microsoft Windows 7 premature Updates (hence Support?) Shutdown RRS feed

  • Question

  • The following thread was branded as spam (deleted): https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/9bffb4fe-7746-4d73-95fd-03e4cf3fa87f/microsoft-windows-7-premature-updates-hence-support-shutdown?forum=w7itproperf
    It described the current premature shutdown issue:

    On my Windows 7 PC I attempted Check Updates via any of the Download/Install manual/auto options, but neither important or optional updates are being offered with the system querying (blue bar showing activity) then ending/without change. The Windows Update software is working/querying fine since I checked it without internet access (fine error output), hence I am asking what to do since it's evident (based on the numerous other Windows 7 Check Updates issue posts, e.g. https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/home?category=w7itpro) that Microsoft has in advance of reported deadline (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4057281/windows-7-support-will-end-on-january-14-2020) shutdown Updates, thus support, for my Windows 7...

    p.s.:Even if I would've liked to try troubleshooting alternative ways (other means, e.g. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4027322/windows-update-troubleshooter), I couldn't, although I wouldn't hesitate to perform additional problem solving tools' options, because I'd have to anticipate the software's file download source placed at an indiscreet link location (https://aka.ms/diag_wu) restricting truly meaningful solution.

    Help Please!

  • Hi,

    I feel very confused about your words, in order to assist you with update related issue, you'd better explain more clear about your specific question and provide detailed error message.

    If you could not update your system, suggest you resetting windows update components.

    Besides, the specific end of support day for Windows 7 will be January 14, 2020. After that, technical assistance and software updates from Windows Update that help protect your PC will no longer be available for the product. Suggest you update your system to windows 10 as soon as possible.

    Hope can help you. Have a nice day!

    Regards,

    Kiki

  • It seems when Microsoft approaches 'millennia' deadline everybody seizes to understand and seizes to known (thus placed clarification at the beginning for when I initially posted this thread, my first post was branded as spam); I think personally clearly precisely specified (via obvious hyperlink examples use) that the inability/unavailability to download any update files seems to come (as NO ERROR shows up) from 'corrupt' premature Microsoft Windows 7 (regardless of version, since I pointed out the presence of the numerous, not just this particular instance, other occurences) Updates shutdown:

    'On my Windows 7 PC I attempted Check Updates via any of the Download/Install manual/auto options, but neither important or optional updates are being offered with the system querying (blue bar showing activity) then ending/without change. '

    And again am saying that because I'd have to anticipate the troubleshooting software's file download source placed at an indiscreet link location (https://aka.ms/diag_wu) this restricts a truly meaningful solution: MEANING that it's UNSAFE.

    Hope the above won't present comparable responses, since it's not Windows 10 upgrade I am looking for (unlinked to technical jandice), but simply install all relevant Update files before (but seems I'm at the last day now, without actual solution) the 14th of January 2020 (today) deadline and continue using this Windows 7 Pc. 

    Replies and especially help are appreciated. Sincerely Thank You in advance.

  • Hi,

     

    Windows 7 has reached end of Extended Support on 14 Jan 2020.

     I strongly recommend that you move to Windows 10 to avoid a situation where you need service or support that is no longer available. more specific details you could refer to the following link:
