I'd suggest worrying about other issues. Anything else, in fact

The distinction between GDR and LDR code is only relevant to Microsoft teams which produce Windows hotfixes and updates, and to the largest of large corporate entities. Unless you find yourself in one of those categories, there's no need to worry about it in the slightest.

I show no build number change. Where would you see this change? from cmd...?

as far as I can tell there is no build number change other than for the file that was updated. In this case c:\windows\explorer.exe

right-click on the file and go to properties > file version. There you should see 16404

7600.16385.amd64fre.win7_rtm.090713-1255

I got it from Windows update. File version 16404

but the build string (for Windows itself) is still 16385...win7_rtm, so I don't think that is supposed to change.
Hi,

Thanks for the reply.
