    As of 01/14/2020 getting automatic updates for Windows 7 has ended. I suggest that you get a new computer with Windows 10. I got Windows 10 Home edition so I could get the updates but you could go for Professional or Enterprise if you wish. While you are upgrading, consider an I7 processor with 8 cores and 32Gb of on-board memory and a 1 Terabyte solid-state hard drive. This will carry you many years to come.

    You need to just use a very very good antivirus and that's it.

    Why would you keep using an outdated, obsolete and buggy operating system? Windows 7 is so patched up it doesn't function for ****!

      Win 10 is on par with Windows ME.............so full of bugs and errors to be almost useless for a lot of things.

    As safe as your web browsing habits are, but that is sort of true even for supported OS's. That is sort of why we run other software to detect threats and even those don't guarantee 100% safety. Browsing trusted sites is the best way to minimize/prevent threats.

    If you don't go online with it, nothing will really be any different.

    If you do go online with it after support has ended, you will be potentially exposing yourself to more risks than if you were using a supported OS. There's no denying that it's not a good idea if safety is your main concern.

    Smart browsing habits will avoid most infections but eventually browsers and other software will stop updating themselves for Windows 7 like they have with Vista and XP.

    as long as browser and antivirus are still being updated it should be fine
