Microsoft has released an update for Windows 7 with improvements for Russia

Microsoft has released an update to the Windows 7 operating system, whose support ended more than a year ago.

Microsoft ended support for the Windows 7 operating system a year and three months ago on January 14, 2020. Nevertheless, according to statistics from Statcounter as of March 2021, users are in no hurry to abandon this OS, despite the risks and security threats – the share of Windows 7 still reaches 16.2% among desktop versions of Windows in the world.

However, for corporate users, Microsoft offers paid extended support for Windows 7. They can receive security updates through the Windows 7 ESU (Extended Security Updates) program until January 2023. In 2021, the price of this service has risen to $ 50 per computer, and in 2022 it will rise to $ 100 per computer.

It is for Windows 7 ESU users that the latest Windows 7 update, KB5001335, is intended to provide both common improvements and fixes for security vulnerabilities. For example, the update solves problems with time zones for Russia (including Volgograd) and South Sudan.
