Microsoft support for Windows 7 will come to an end on January 14, 2020. When this happens your computer will still function but Microsoft will no longer provide software updates, security updates or technical support for any issues.
To keep your computer secure you can still upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 10 for free, see our Tutorial at Ten Forums for instructions
Do a System Image First, just in case of catastrophic failure using System Bsckup & Restore.

N.B. Windows 8 is dead and 8.1 dies January 10, 2023.

We are talking mainstream support, some business models are longer-lived.

Sorry but you are looking for a different kind of help than we offer here.

Before January 14, 2020, Microsoft claimed to provide a free upgrade method. After January 14, I did not check to see if it was still free.

That link is still valid. The owner of the group is a Microsoft MVP so you can trust his forums.
