It's a collection of updates. No new features or performance improvements.

Dear Bhavirisetty,
Quote " Another option would be to install Windows, all your drivers, and then hit windows update. Then when its fully patched, save an image of your hard drive with something like Acronis True Image. Then the next time you have to do a re-install just restore the image. "unquote--alphanumeric.

That makes more sense than this : Microsoft Update Catalog I have narrowed the updates to critical and there are 52 of them. With a slow connection it will be a very long process! That's not the way to go! Acronis disk image is not free, but Macrium-Reflect is! You can create a system image using it. Link : Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download
Using Macrium is easy too! It may not be a walk in the park in the early days, but at least you can jog along fine with it! There are tutorials for Mac-Ref : www.macrium.com/tutorial.asp

How about the brief history of mankind in a few words. You aren't making this very easy on people trying to help you.

It's a Service Pack, which primarily means it is a rollup of all the security updates to this point. That makes me wonder why you discard and ignored the suggestions to use SP1 from the beginning, and then you later ask what it is? How can you dismiss a suggestion if you don't know what's being suggested?

The point was, instead of needing to download 70+ individual updates, just get SP1. On a clean install of Windows 7, you would follow that up by installing SP1, and then you are pretty much up to date. There's no need to download each individual security update, despite the fact you insisted on wanting to do that.

In short, if you aren't sure of something...ask before you start dismissing good suggestions.

MSE updates flagged in Win 7 updates but not XP Mode updates
I find it odd that when I do a Windows Update in Windows 7, the Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) updates are also found. But if I do a Windows Update in XP Mode, the MSE updates are not found. I don't suppose this is controllable? I'd like the Windows Update to find MSE updates.
