Windows 7 computers that arenít running compatible antivirus software no longer receive security updates from Microsoft due to a compatibility issue thatís believed to be causing BSODs.

This policy was originally introduced on Windows 10 with the January 2018 cumulative updates. Microsoft required Windows 10 systems to set a dedicated registry key in order to continue receiving security updates, with incompatible antivirus software blocking any patches that the company released.

According to Myce, Windows 7 systems without antivirus or with security products that arenít considered to be compatible are also blocked from getting security updates.

Unlike Windows 10, Windows 7 does not come with built-in security production, and the software giant offers Microsoft Security Essentials free of charge to those who havenít yet upgraded to a newer version of the operating system.
