I'm not downloading it. I already know about April 8. I just don't
know if it will do something that it doesn't tell you about in the
discription.

So if support ends April 8, should I just turn off automatic updates on
April 7th?

I'm afraid to turn them off earlier, because there will be something
important and I'll forget to dl until after the 8th and then maybe it
won't let me?????

I turned off WinXP support 5 years ago and never had a problem.

Yes, it does seem odd that they would release an "update" whose sole
purpose was/is to pop up a popup, as it were.

So if support ends April 8, should I just turn off automatic updates on
April 7th?

They haven't said they won't, but they haven't given any hint that they
will turn off the update servers: all they've definitely said is that
they won't _create_ any more updates.

Support ends April 8, Not automatic updates


I read, from MS itself, I think, that there will be no more security
updates. So if you're doing a new install after April 8, you might get
automatic updates of all those updates created before April 8. But if
you have updated an established computer whenever updates were
available, there will be no more updates created, so automatic update
might run, but there will be nothing to download.

I'm afraid to turn them off earlier, because there will be something
important and I'll forget to dl until after the 8th and then maybe it
won't let me?????


The automatic updates will turn off whin the time comes


Automatic updates can be read at least two ways. Emphasizing
automatic, that the user, especailly one doing a new install, or one who
hasn't turned his computer on since, say, 2013, doesn't have to actively
solicit existing updates. And emphasizing updates. If he has
all the updates and there are no more, then for him I don't think
automatic update exists anymore.

For it we 2 to 3 year after
the Support ends for Windows 98
Then they stop to updates


They seem to be planning to do things differently from that.
