Security and bug support for Windows 7 is ending in just under a month on January 14, 2020. There is a way that some users can extend that support, but it’s going to cost them.

Home users aren’t eligible for Windows 7 Extended Security Updates. Businesses running Windows 7 Enterprise or Windows 7 Pro will be able to licenses, paying for each PC in their organization.

If you’re running Windows 7 Enterprise, security updates are estimated to cost $25 for each PC for the first year. (That’s in addition to their volume licenses for running Windows ) That goes up t $50 per computer in year two and $100 per device in year three.

Windows 7 Pro users will pay even more.  Fifty dollars per PC in the first year. That goes up to $100 per PC in the second. By the third year, you’ll pay $200 per PC.

The extended support can only be purchased from third-party companies, called CSP (Cloud Solution Partners).

Keep in mind, this solution is intended for businesses only. It’s far less expensive for individuals to just purchase a new computer or upgrade to Windows 10.
