As we know, in October 2025, Windows 10 will no longer be supported and that means it will no longer receive security updates. So can you still use Windows security features on Windows 10? like anti-virus and others, they just don't get the latest updates, but can they still be used?

    As per lifecycle policy, after that date, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates - including anti-virus definition updates. If you continue using the OS, that would mean you are accepting the corresponding risk
