How To Stop Paying For Windows 7 Updates

Eirman asked
Last Modified: 2020-10-08
A friend of mine is paying about €60 a month to Microsoft for security updates to a Windows 7 PC.
He wants to cease these payments immediately and cannot see how.

I don't have a Win7 PC to hand, to try and describe what to do.

I imagine it involves logging into a Microsoft account and cancelling any relevant subscription.
Is that done from a browser or within Win7 ?
