Microsoft has denied Windows 7 access to drivers

Published

on

Microsoft has stopped releasing drivers through Windows Update for Windows 7 SP1, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2.

SHA-1 for Windows 7 SP1, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 expired on May 9, 2021 and is no longer used by Microsoft.

Due to end of support and expiration of SHA-1 certificates, Microsoft Trusted Root Program partners may publish incompatible SHA-2 signed drivers. This, in turn, could lead to a deterioration in functionality or to a longer loading of devices.

To avoid incompatibility issues, Microsoft decided to stop publishing SHA-2 signed drivers in Windows Update on June 17, 2021 for Windows 7 SP1, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 devices.

All of these versions of Windows were no longer supported on January 14, 2020. It is noted that Microsoft has made a new change to reduce the inconvenience to users who are still using them.

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.

For these users, drivers will be released by Microsoft until January 2023.

The flagship smartphones of the Galaxy S22 series will be the first to receive One UI 5.0, which is logical. But the source writes that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 will join the beta testing program pretty quickly. Well, the final version of One UI 5.0 will appear only in October. However, this is still earlier than the release of One UI 4.0 took place at one time.

Popular Action Launcher Android skin gets more free features

Action Launcher is a fairly popular shell for the Android operating system among paid ones. The developers have released Action Launcher v50, which has many more free features for those who do not want to pay for such features.

The app has gone through a lot of improvements over the years to keep up with some of the key improvements made by Google. However, in recent times there has been more and more criticism that the free basic version had a minimum number of features.

The Action Launcher’s implementation of the Freemium system has historically been terrible. We pushed people too aggressively to buy the Plus upgrade, which turned off so many people, and the app was hardly interesting for non-paying users.

Action Launcher v50 is suitable for everyone whether you pay or not. The new version offers an improved search engine that uses the Pixel Launcher. Action search gives you the best results on the web and on your device, as well as some action launcher settings that can be toggled right from the home screen.

In addition to action search and other free features, the action launcher’s own settings are changed. The app adds a settings search bar as well as shortcuts to recently changed settings.
