Windows 7 hack to continue with support

Someone discovered a way to enable Extended Security Updates on all systems running Microsoft's Windows 7 operating system.

Support for Microsoft's Windows 7 operating system stops him January of 2020, but businesses can extend support for up to three years, depending on how much they pay.Windows 7

Small businesses will have to pay Microsoft up to 200 dollars per device per year for extended support, while large businesses up to 200 dollars per user per year. Extensive support is already available and there are certain conditions that must be met.

Microsoft will not offer the Extended Security Updates program to Home users, though some would pay Microsoft to extend support to Windows 7.

Users participating in the Extended Security Updates program should install an update that verifies that they are eligible for new updates after January 14. Extensive security updates should be installed online and cannot be installed offline, at least not for the time being.

But users in the My Digital Life forum they discovered a way to bypass the control of Extended Security Updates. The bypass works with the trial release released by Microsoft, and we don't know how it will work with the actual updates the company will release next January at 2020 Patch Day.

All you need to do is download a small file from the My Digital Life forum and export it. The package includes two scripts that enable or disable bypass.

The hack allows support for all versions of Windows 7, even those that Microsoft does not want to support after January 14. In other words: Windows 2020 Home, Starter, or Ultimate versions will be able to receive updates distributed by the Extended Security Updates program.

How to test:

- install the 3 prerequisites:
KB4490628 -> KB4474419 -> reboot -> KB4523206

- install BypassESU

- install the ESU test update KB4528069
