DoctorLaptop’s Tips #73
Windows 7: How to stop the new “End of Service” nag screens & How to extend your Windows 7 support for an extra 3 years.
-Starting April 18th Microsoft is rolling out updates that will pop-up a warning message that Support for Windows 7 is ending soon (14Jan2020). This is another annoying nag message like when they wanted everyone to do the free upgrade to Win 10 a few years ago. To prevent it do not download or install Windows Update KB4493132. If you are already getting the messages, wait till one appears and look at the lower left corner. There you can check the box to choose “don’t remind me again”. See pic, click to enlarge.

-Windows 7 ESU (Extended Security Updates) is coming, an extension of Win 7 support for up to 3 years. Those of you who follow my tips will remember I said Microsoft has changed their biz model from selling a product to selling a subscription service. This is where it starts. Microsoft will stop providing security updates or support for Windows 7 on January 14, 2020. Starting this month Microsoft will be selling the ESU add-on to extend the life of your Win 7, but only the Pro/Ultimate/Enterprise versions of Win 7, not Home or Home Premium versions. The starting price of ESU is $25 or $50 per device per year. The cost will be doubled in the second year, and then doubled again in the third year. So in the last year, you need to pay $100 or $200 per device for the support. ESU is not intended for the casual home user at these prices, it’s more for power users and businesses who are running expensive Win 7 only software. If you need to upgrade your Win 7 Home or Home Premium to Win Pro so you can get ESU, they will sell you that too. With the ESU for Windows 7, the covered PCs will be able to run and continue to receive updates for Office 365 ProPlus and the applications installed locally and bundled with Office 365: Outlook, Excel, Word, and so on. Now you see why selling services beats selling products.
A note to cheaters: the ESU is sold per device so sharing from one comp to another is not supposed to be possible, but someone may figure out a way eventually.

AIR STRIKES SPAIN: Full details of TODAY’S and TOMORROW’S flight cancellations in source article.
A total of 148 flights, affecting around 10,000 passengers, have been cancelled during the first three days of six planned days of strike action by pilots in Spain.
The strike by SEPLA (Spanish Union of Airline Pilots) members has forced Air Nostrum, a franchisee of Iberia, to cancel flights on April 15, 16 and 17 (see full list in source article).
The union has also called another three days of action on April 22, 23 and 24 and the airline is expected to announce the flights affected on those dates soon if negotiations with the unions fail.
