It applies to Windows Updates.

Support for Vista ended in 2017.

So what Windows Updates for Vista did you get two days ago?

Hi jslee6:

Dave-H reported this past Friday (25-Sep-2020) that the Windows Update servers had been reactivated for Win XP and Vista devices that only support SHA-1 in the MSFN forum thread On decommissioning of update servers for 2000, XP, (and Vista?) as of July 2019.  Unfortunately, Windows Update was deactivated again on 28-Sep-2020 for those devices and users started seeing the typical error 80244019 that first appeared around 03-Aug-2020 when they tried to run Windows Update – see VistaLover’s image <here> for their Vista SP2 machine in that same thread.

No one seems to know why Microsoft ‌reactivated the Windows Update servers for SHA-1 based Win XP and Vista machines for 3 or 4 days, but during this brief period time multiple users with these older OSs reported that that they were able to use Windows Update to patch their MS Office 2010 suite with security updates released after 03-Aug-2020.  I have no idea why Microsoft chose the date of 03-Aug-2020 to permanently deactivate the Windows Update servers for Win XP and Vista users (see the MS support article Windows Update SHA-1 Based Endpoints Discontinued for Older Windows Devices that Bill Smithers referenced for more information) but it seems ridiculous to me that Microsoft couldn't leave the Windows Update servers turned on for a few more months until MS Office 2010 reached it’s official end of support on 13-Oct-2020.

Windows 7 SP1

Windows 8 and later versions

No need to update

On a side note Windows 7 pre-SP1 is out of support, too. It can not be mitigated by manually installing KBs. It cannot be fixed other than converting it to Windows 7 SP1, i.e. installing Service Pack 1.

On the other hand, Windows Update support of Windows 7 SP1 is not impacted. No need to mitigate anything. Microsoft is 100% incorrect about the Windows 7 section of their own table. The line between "Not supported" and "Not affected" is a sharp one, and it runs right through Windows 7. That in-between case given by Microsoft regarding Windows 7 is ficticious.

Then could you please request to reactivate the Windows Update servers for SHA-1 based Win XP and Vista machines until 2020?
