They could be stopped by clicking on the “Do not bother again” option at the bottom right of the pop-up notification window.

Microsoft has placed a link to a support page in the pop-up notification window showing the end of support for the Windows 7 platform and the options users must take.

The latest security update for the Windows 7 platform is scheduled for January 14, 2020.
