https://www.thewindowsclub.com/windows-7-end-of-support The end of support date for Windows 7 SP1 --- and also for Internet Explorer --- is  January 14, 2020.   Beginning next month, if you are a Windows 7 customer, you can expect to see a notification appear on your Windows 7 PC. This is a courtesy reminder that you can expect to see a handful of times in 2019. After January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or support for PCs running Windows 7. You can continue to use Windows 7, but once support ends, your PC will become more vulnerable to security risks. Windows will operate but you will stop receiving security and feature updates.
