Microsoft are not entirely innocent here

I wonder how many infected Windows 7 users had turned off Windows Update (as I had) because last year Microsoft was using it to try to forcibly install Windows 10 on us?

After reading advice on this very site, I went with the option of turning off Windows Update, and trying to do important updates myself. (Very easy for casual users to get wrong, or forget.)
