If you're a user of old Edge, I highly advise you give the new Edge a try as it really is an improvement in nearly every regard.
Pay for Extended Security Updates: you'll need to have Window 7 Professional or Enterprise for this, and pay $50 (for Professional) or $25 (for Enterprise) per seat to stay connected and protected. That said, Windows 7 was a solid OS and millions of computers are still running it.
Lastly, if you're still riding along with Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 for whatever reason, this free Windows 10 upgrade method will work for you as well.
There is no mitigating or workaround available for this vulnerability, so you're highly recommended to install the latest software updates by heading on to your Windows Settings → Update & Security → Windows Update → clicking 'Check for updates on your PC'.
"Technical assistance and software updates from Windows Update that help protect your PC are no longer available for the product".
If you can't or won't upgrade, Windows 7 will still carry on working after today.
In other words, even though the support for Windows 7 has come to an end, you can still upgrade to Windows 10 without paying for a license. When an app developer "signs" an app, it's a way for the operating system the app runs on to verify that that app is legitimate and not a fake app meant to look like the real thing. Which is why hackers and other miscreants are going to be all over the OS from tomorrow: if they can find a hole (or if they have already found one and are keeping it under wraps), and know it won't be generally fixed by Microsoft on subsequent Patch Tuesdays, they'll be quids in.

For the rest of you, today is also an important day, as Microsoft is allegedly fixing a rather large security vulnerability that affects Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.
The Microsoft patch marks the first time the NSA has publicly claimed credit for prompting a software security update, although the agency said it has alerted companies in the past to flaws in their products. The word is Microsoft is still allowing this transition from Windows 7 to Windows 10.
Some computers will get the patch automatically, if they have the automatic update option turned on. "In many scenarios, these systems are hard to protect against attacks requiring physical access because by nature they are deployed to physically accessible areas".

Now You: do you still run Windows 7?
Right now, Google Chrome is the leading desktop browser out there with almost 65% market share, and Google has already announced support for Windows 7 for at least 18 more months.
