Hack allows updates to Windows 7 after end of support

Windows 7 users who find themselves without critical official update support are still able to use a hack to keep the OS up to date, according to Softpedia News.

Although Microsoft officially ended support for Windows 7 on 14 January, the company continues to provide qualifying Enterprise users with updates through its Extended Security Updates (ESU) programme.

Users who sign up for this support continue to receive critical security updates at a cost of between $25 (R370) and $50 (R740) per year. Reports indicate that this amount could double each consecutive year.
