Windows 7: A hidden Patch Tuesday gem: A Windows 7 hotfix rollup

I don't have IE installed anymore so thanks for the direct links Brink.
For a total roll up of post SP1 fixes 31 MB seems on the small side???
I doubt that I would have stumbled across it I'm just leaving it sit for the time being. Does it really need to be run?

It's not a security rollup! There may be improvements in efficiency. I installed it 36 hours ago on a single un-networked PC. No difference noticed in regular internet usage.

A couple of speed increases noticed in access to:1) fonts in control panel; also fixed(?) something faulty in remembering settings there, 2) external hard drives; sleeping hard drives still take awhile.

From what I've read, most of the items in the rollup are geared towards networks in enterprises. I can't tell from update history whether those items were disregarded for my PC, since they wouldn't apply.

I did install and run MBSA. It could use some work on the user-interface and visual feedback. It found four security updates I "missed": 3 visual c++ redistributables that were never offered and a time-zone one that didn't seem to apply for me at the time of its release.

Just to let a little feedback about this Enterprise Roll-up package...

I 've noticed a slower boot about 2 seconds that might comes from the SMB network drivers.
Nothing in particular in the Events Manager can tell errors after applying this package.

It is a smooth install at least.

There's a list of drivers and .dll it had install on screenshots. Mostly all are dated from October 2012

Use the wrap text with "Code Tags" and it will become scrollable text in your message. Highlight the text you want then click on the # sign in the tools area of the message box.

I didn't really look at mine that closely so you might want to review it for non-public info first. Just copy to NotePad to review/edit then select and copy again before pasting to your message.
Thanx. But I don't understand all the ins & outs of all that stuff at top of posting area, 'wrap text,Code Tags,etc'. I remember once I wanted to underline something I was posting & when I clicked on U, I got symbols that had me lost so all I know is to just type, do smileys, & attach files. Also think that if I want to ask more questions about MBSA I should move to a different area of the board 'cuz most of the replies like the last 3 are about the 'Hidden Gem' which is waaay over my head & just causing me more confusion. I shouldn't have jumped in here with my question in the 1st place, my bad.

Britton, Thanks but not sure I understand what you're saying but as I said earlier, this thread was originally about Patch Tuesday so I really need to get out of here so people can get on with that subject. I fear I've just caused a mess of confusion here by jumping in with my question about MBSA.

After installing this update, for the first time ever I had issues come up with sfc. I don't know if it was this or possibly something else. I restores to a backup prior to this hotfix roll-up and everything is fine. Also I didn't see any tangible benefit.

Trying to find out if it is the hotfixes. Anybody else experience this?

Hello GeneO,

I just ran an sfc /scannow on a Win 7 32 Bit OS with this update installed and did not find any problems.
Any chance you could post a screen shot, or post the problems you found ?
I'd like to know if there are issues before installing this on other systems!

Thanks, David
Like I said, I restored from backup and the issue was gone - so can't get a screen shot. It was probably something else then - I may try to install again. Thanks.
