Starting this month, Microsoft has stopped delivering updates for Windows 7 and 8.1 operating systems running on modern processor models, such as Intel 7th Generation (Kaby Lake) and AMD 7th Generation (Bristol Ridge).

Microsoft says that support for new CPU models will only be provided for Windows 10, its latest OS, and not Windows 7 and 8.1, which are approaching their end-of-life.
