Flavallee mentioned although W7 suppport officially ends in 2020, there may be unofficial support until 2021.
Does this mean that W7 will be secure until 2021 ? Would I have to change the microsoft antivirus (MSE) if I continue use W7 ?
Thanks

It's my guess that Microsoft will drop support for Microsoft Security Essentials soon after "official" support ends for Windows 7 SP1 in January 2020.
Time will tell.

"Unofficial" support for Windows 7 SP1 may be able to be extended until October 2021, but I won't be able to confirm that until February 2020.
