Windows 7: Notes on Windows 7 Service Pack 1 - Installed Early This Morning

Notes on Windows 7 Service Pack 1 - Installed Early This Morning

Win7SP1 came up as a Windows automatic update last night so I installed it and have done three restarts and one more "check for updates" now to insure it has settled down. For major updates it is a good idea to watch the CPU Usage History graph in the Performance Tab of Task Manager so you know when all processes and services are fully loaded. I keep a shortcut to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\taskmgr.exe in the Start Menu>All Programs>Startup Folder so it automatically opens whenever Windows restarts.

Windows7 Home Premium x64 took about 3 min 7 secs to fully load. It appears SP1 has added about a minute to that as the CPU Usage History graph doesn't flatline for 4 min 2 secs. I load 70 processes, but that will vary for each user based on the software installed.

It took a while to find the release notes and a list of the 796 hotfixes and security updates included in SP1. They can be downloaded at

So far everything seems to be working great.

The only problem I experienced since installing SP1 was that I got a loud audio feedback and a frozen mouse for several seconds a couple times a day. It occurred when I was listening to music or podcasts with the latest versions of iTunes and Realplayer.

To fix it I went to Realtek and updated the Realtek High-Definition Audio Driver to R2.57 dated Jan 25, 2011. Haven't had a recurrence since.
