As one of Microsoft’s most popular systems, Win7 has been released for 13 years, and mainstream support and extended support have expired in early 2020. However, Microsoft does not completely ignore Win7 updates, and today released a patch KB5011552, But need to pay ESU to update.
The second Tuesday in February is Microsoft’s patch update day. This time, Microsoft has brought new security updates to both Win7 and Win8.1. The numbers are KB5011552 and KB5011564 respectively. The problems solved will not be introduced in detail, mainly: Some system errors and security updates are almost impossible for ordinary people to encounter, and may still make sense for enterprise users.
For Win7 users, this patch upgrade is a little more troublesome, because Microsoft’s support has long expired, and now it is ESU (Extended Security Update) support for enterprise users, which is a paid service, and you can spend money to update the patch .
The ESU service is only for 3 years. Win7’s ESU can support up to January 2023. Not only is it charged, but the price will increase every year. In 2021, it will rise to $50 per unit, and it will rise to $100 in 2022.
对于Win7用户来说，这次的补丁升级就麻烦一点，因为微软的支持早就过期了，现在是针对企业级用户的ESU（Extended Security Update）支持，而这是付费服务，花钱才能更新补丁。
