Windows 7: Is the Windows SP1 worth of installing?


25 Nov 2011   #1

Is the Windows SP1 worth of installing?

I installed the SP1 when it was released.
I experienced several problems regarding compatibility with programs.

As the question states I want to know that should I upgrade to SP1 now that new updates have come?

Hello guys,

Yes, I believe that it's worth installing the SP1 for the updates and patches that it provides. You might see if this may help for any other details and FAQs though.

Ah! thanks.
But, this makes me ask another question, is the RTM final release different/better than the (i dont know) first release?

I got several issues with programs, I think/expect that it was because of the new programs were not yet fully compatible with SP1 ?!? and that now all programs would have fixed those issues.

The current and only SP1 available is the RTM final release. It is one in the same.

If you don't have Service Pack then you don't have Windows 7 as it exists now.

It's like an overhaul of a car engine - it becomes the engine.

Users once avoided XP SP3 because it was thought to have issues - now we don't even want to use an XP installer without it because it's XP's last link to modernity.

Never download and install any preview, beta or similar versions of a new service pack, unless you're willing to be a guinea pig.
Always wait for the final (RTM) release.

Not a single compatability issue here at my place, 6 computers, or at work, where i manage 150 computers, perhaps, your installation is not legit or its compromised with virus or spyware?

IMHO, SP1 is an important update, especially for the server flavor
