    Who knows, I suppose anything can happen right? Barring a miracle of epic proportions, I don't expect further patches. Microsoft wants Windows 7 gone asap. There will always be flaws, even Windows 10 is not immune... get yourself a good firewall, lock down your system and use a modern browser. Keep your browsing habits smart and use a good antivirus while they are still available. Most breaches are the fault of the user, not the OS.

    Well...
    If Microsoft wants Windows 7 gone the best way is to send his technicians to install and configure and test that 100% works in every Company, Office, Institute... in the world, FOR FREE!
    If NOT, if "my" working business machine is doing his job with Windows 7 nothing on my mind tells me to put Windows 10 instead

    There are some still using Windows XP, i mean ATM Bank's (crazy!!!) here in Italy, and many others still using Windows 7.

    Another point, i know many people who tried to upgrade to Windows 10 from 7 when it was released but they got scared, and returned immediatly back to Windows 7, and they were right!
    Those 2019 and 2020 releases of Windows 10 are very good but the very first... o_O

    I absolutely agree on Windows 10. I've "upgraded" a dozen times so far, and each time i've ran into problems... never the same problem either... each build brings a new headache. Constant upgrades and invasive telemetry ruin the experience, not to mention the heavy handed restrictions Microsoft imposes when it comes to certain software. I plan on using Windows 7 for many years, and thanks to Simplix I have a reasonable chance of security & privacy. It's a great pack and it is probably the only reason I am still using a Microsoft OS. We had a great ride on "supported" Windows 7, it doesn't have to end here though, best of luck!

    The problem is, win 7 can't even service itself properly and i run 10 for as along as it exists, never encountered any big problem, except the userfile deletion when upgrading with the "released to dev" 17763.1, not a biggy because i only had downloads in them, no really important stuff.

    For me win 10 is best to use, all servicing options can be used on it, even for offline servicing 7 (as experienced over and over creating my SiMPLiX tool, for 1 simple dism command i needed to use ADK for 8.1/10 to get it to work on a win 7 host).

    If simplix updatepack is the cause for problems with one torrent app, or the torrent app is not updated for the new win 7 updates, then the creator probably will fix it.

    Does Simplix and WHDownloader include the same updates?

    Hello folks,

    This is my first post here and I'm hoping you can help me.

    My machine has a 7th generation processor and I have successfully been using the Update Pack for two years because Simplix disables the processor checking.

    However with the February update I'm now seeing the alert screen telling me I can't use Windows 7 with my processor and must upgrade to Windows 10 crap.

    Also I'm seeing the End of Life Support for Windows 7 popping up, although the update for which Simplix says isn't included in the Update Pack. I can turn it off temporarily but it comes back on each machine startup.

    Is anyone else using a similar processor to me and if so do you see what I see?

    I'm wondering if there is any way I can stop this rubbish blocking my screen as it's annoying.

    Thanks.

    regarding the annoying message that appears saying the end of life support win7, you can easily make it disappear using these 3 command lines :

    you have to run these command lines in admin mode :

    Send a photo of the message and install the most recent updatepack.

    Ok thank you, that seems to have fixed it.

    Regarding the processor alert it seems to be related to the Windows Update Service (not the Windows Update settings) so I've disabled that service and so far after three reboots it hasn't shown itself. However it maybe a delayed alert and might be set to show up maybe every 24hrs or whatever, so I won't know until tomorrow if what I've done works properly.

    Quite why it's started after just installing the February Pack update I don't know, Microsoft must have changed something in the wuagent.exe maybe, but I'll wait and see what happens from tomorrow or later.

    These enormous collections always puzzle me... 63 updates?

    I downloaded simplex Feb 2020, and all it installed were FOUR updates.

    If you have this problem again, it's possible you may have (knowingly or unknowingly) installed some background updates via Windows Update, do a clean install and before you connect to the internet disable Windows Update via Control Panel, then disable Windows Update via "Services" and also disable Background Intelligent Transfer via "Services" which allows Microsoft the ability to push unwanted software. Once this is done apply the Update Pack (if you haven't integrated it) and then connect to the internet.
