  • Hi,
       

    The latest security updates and monthly rollups for Windows 7 SP1:
       

    After January 14, 2020, if your PC is running Windows 7 and you have not purchased Extended Security Updates, the computer will no longer receive security updates. 
      

    Hope the above can help you.

  • sure, I am well aware about January 14 2020.

    The question was about LAST patches.

    Were December's patches the LAST for Windows 7?

    I am asking because my WSUS server that serves major part of Network (servers and workstations) for some reason not showing any January patches for OSes (I got Office patches) with successful sync with Microsoft.

    And another WSUS that serves Server OSes and few Windows10 only, got 2012, 2016, 2019 Server patches release Jan 14.

    So I can consider that if there is a problem on the WSUS that not received any OS patches and serves park of Windows 7, patches of Jan14 for Windows 7 could be available.

    And YES I read earlier on some tech blog that last patches for Windows 7 will be issued on Jan 14 2020.

  • Yic,

    this is the answer I expected. Thanks.

    Now I have to find out why on well synchronized WSUS I don't see any OS patches.

    I will create a new thread for this.

    And for now can import W7 patches following your answer.
