Now that MS has stopped supporting Win7 I'm wondering if it is safe to go to their download site and get MSE and MRT updates? I'd rather use the old ones I have than screw them up and not have them. Anyone have a clue?

Windows 7 is supported through mid-January 2020. So it hasn't ended yet.

Hummmm? I thought it was July of this year, and I haven't received any updates at all since last month. Thanks for the info.

On January 14, 2020, Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7. Mainstream supported ended in 2015, but Windows 7 has carried on receiving security updates thanks to extended support. When that ends in 2020, Windows 7 will remain as it is. Businesses will be able to pay Microsoft for continued Windows 7 support.
