if you prefer not to switch to Win 10 but stay with Win 7 then you should be Ok with security patches etc from Microsoft until 2020

providing you computer still supports it

The "free upgrade offer" from Microsoft has ended.
so you will not be able to now take advantage of it.

If you wish to install Win 10 then you should buy it...

I do not recommend,support, or comment on any steps that attempts to install Win 10 unless it has been paid for, or was part of the free offer previously referred to.
