        So, now that we’re faced with the End of Support notifications that are “baked into” the latest patches for December 2019 and January 2020, I have a couple of questions:

        Is simply disabling the EOSNotify tasks (EOSNotify and EOSNotify2) in the Setup folder of Windows in Task Scheduler enough for us to never see the screen in the first place, or do we need to let the screen come up at least once and click the little check box in the lower left corner when it does come up to never see it again?

        If we disable the tasks in Task Scheduler, do we also need to disable the triggers for those tasks as well?

        I am aware that once the screen comes up and has been dismissed, one can also go into the registry and add a key, or add a value to an existing key, to prevent the screen from coming up any further as well, in case they missed the check box in the lower left corner of the screen when it first came up.

        This concept (registry editing to stop the screen from coming up) has been discussed on other threads here on AskWoody within the last month, so it should be easy to find by simply entering “EOSNotify” in the search box to the right of this series of posts.

        @abbodi86 has a script in AKB2000012 that is meant to neutralize telemetry in Win7. He also added commands for nullifying the EOS nag messages and the fullscreen EOS nag.

        I use the script for both telemetry and EOS nag elimination as a Scheduled task on startup. Or you can use it manually for the same effect. The instructions for setting it up are in the thread. If you do not want to use the script, you can look at the commands (it is a plain text file) and change the settings appropriately.
