Microsoft pushed a full-screen warning to Windows 7 users who are still running the OS after January 14. . After14 January 2020, they’ll get no more security updates to the operating system for free. Even though users will be able to continue to run Windows 7 after that date, they’ll be more susceptible to potential security problems. Microsoft delivered this new, nag notification, to Windows 7 users by making it part of a patch rollup. The coming notification was embedded in monthly rollup KB4530734, which Microsoft made available to Windows 7 SP1 users on December 10 as part of its Patch Tuesday set of updates.

Those who see the full-screen warning will have three options: Remind me later; Learn more; or Don’t remind me again. If users don’t click on the “Don’t remind me again” button and just dismiss the screen, they will continue to get nag warnings.
