Default Win 7 activation after 2020??

I've got a 3 licence Win7 DVD with only one used so this has been concerning me for a while. But as the time is drawing nearer I've decided to look into it.

It's a YES, but with all the MS project fear caveats. They really don't want you to do it do they.

"Windows 7 can still be installed and activated after end of support; however, it will be more vulnerable to security risks and viruses due to the lack of security updates. After January 14, 2020, Microsoft strongly recommends that you use Windows 10 instead of Windows 7."

Look at the FAQs list here

Sounds a reasonable warning to me. Does not stop you installing Win 7 if you want to take the risk.
