Does Windows Update still work on Windows 7?

I was getting Defender security updates till last month, now there is no more updates, I always see the status  "Computer is updated" in the control panel.

Welcome to MSFN Licht92. Since no other Win7 users have reported that issue, did you install an antivirus last month? That would usually turn off Defender, and you only get automatic definition updates when it is turned on. Still, M$ did block antispyware definition updates for Vista in 2019, so they may have done the same to Win7 now. In that case, you could manually download and install definitions from this M$ page: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/wdsi/defenderupdates
