Willing to risk Win7 after Jan next year? (Bad idea BTW!) You can add no Anti-Virus to that risk as well...

When the Windows 7 operating system ticks over into extended support on 14 January, Microsoft will also permanently discontinue its Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) antivirus software.

Businesses that rely on the security platform, which has been available for legacy editions of Windows including 7, XP and Vista, will have to find an alternative between now and 14 January, according to the firm.

Launched in 2008, MSE has provided Windows devices real-time malware protection, with a set of stripped-down features aimed at nullifying threats as and when they arise.

“Your Windows 7 computer is not protected by MSE after January 14, 2020,” Microsoft said in its FAQs page for Windows 7 extended support. “MSE is unique to Windows 7 and follows the same lifecycle dates for support.”
