Security between Windows OSs on dual boot


Recommended Posts

Windows 7 updates are coming to and end, for most people, next week. I have a dual boot laptop with Windows 7 and a trial version of Windows 10. After Windows 7 no longer gets security updates, even if I have my Internet connection on Win7 turned off when I use it, is it possible that it's vulnerable via Windows 10? From within either OS I can access files on the other OS.


Apologies if this sounds a silly question. I'm not a complete beginner, but know nothing about Windows security.


I'd appreciate any tips or advice.


(Somehow managed to accidentally give my own question 5 stars... and can't undo it.)
