    Understand ,,, just be sure to use third-party AV product of some kind; otherwise, you are seriously risking getting the PC infected once it gets out onto the Internet. Experiments with this in the past has shown that takes only a few MINUTES to happen!

    Actually, you should AVOID Win10 v20.04 at this time -- as MS has been having SERIOUS problems with it and still have a bunch of issues they have not addressed and have provided no date to expect fixes. You would probably do better going after Win10 v19.09 -- as that is stable and not encountering issues. Plus, the newer the Win10 version, the less likely it will work on older Win7 PCs. IF you post in this forum when you're ready to do that download, someone can tell you where to find an ISO file -- but understand, you must upgrade from INSIDE win7 for the upgrade to be free -- as the upgrade tool has to see Win7 already installed and running on the PC.

    Tech is right -- there are literally HUNDREDS of updates for Win7 -- and while there are some tricks you can perform to cut that number down by forcing the install of more recent Cumulative Updates, those don't always work. Also, Win 7 is NOT supported by MS anymore, and they have not issued any security patches since February -- so unless you install third-party AV product, using it online is begging for malware! As to the memory situation, 4GB works just fine for Win10 -- I don't know why you think you need more.
