    New One!:

    If you cannot find the “Find Now,” “Stop,” and “Clear All” buttons in the Group Policy Management Console snap-in on a computer that is runningWindows 7or Windows Server 2008 R2 then you may want to apply this hotfix from Microsoft.


    Consider the following scenario:
    • You have a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7.
    • You connect to a domain controller by using the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) snap-in.
    • You edit a Group Policy setting and configure the Item-level targeting option.
    • You select Organizational Unit as the targeting item.
    • You open the Find Custom Search dialog box to add an organizational unit (OU).
    In this scenario, you notice that the following buttons are missing on the Custom Search and Advanced tabs:
    • Find Now
    • Stop
    • Clear All
    Therefore, you cannot use the condition list to filter and find specific OUs.


    APPLIES TO

    • Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard
    • Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter
    • Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise
    • Windows 7 Enterprise
    • Windows 7 Professional
    • Windows 7 Ultimate

    Again!

    This is one strange Windows 7 quirk! Lets say you use the Windows 7 Backup utility to perform a backup and save the files on to your hard disk. Now IF you use this Windows 7 Backup utility again to perform a backup for a group of files that are LARGER than the first group of backed up files, the back up may take a real long time … even upto 16 hours for 400 GB of files!

    More to read here:
    The backup process requires significantly more time when you use the Windows Backup utility in Windows 7 if the size of the backup files increases

    APPLIES TO:

    • Windows 7 Enterprise
    • Windows 7 Home Basic
    • Windows 7 Home Premium
    • Windows 7 Professional
    • Windows 7 Ultimate

    This one was hidding!

    Could be an addition to the Dec 23, 2009 kb977380:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/977380/en-us


    Symptoms:
    You have a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. You use the Search programs and files box on the Start menu to search files on the computer. In this case, you notice that search result does not include libraries that are not indexed. Therefore, you cannot use the Search programs and files box to search files that are stored on network locations.

    Cause:
    This issue occurs because of a design change in Windows 7 and in Windows Server 2008 R2. By default, the search functionality from the Search programs and files box on the Start menu does not search libraries that are not indexed.

    The "Search programs and files" box on the Start menu does not search files on network locations that are not indexed in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2

    • Windows 7 Ultimate

    MS - 2010, September 1st Hotfix:

    Duplicated data may be in the Performance log when you use the Performance Logs and Alerts service to collect performance data in Windows Server 2008, in Windows Vista, in Windows 7, or in Windows Server 2008 R2.

    Symptoms:
    When you use the Performance Logs and Alerts service to collect performance data, the collected data in the Performance log may contain duplicated data.

    The time difference between the duplicated data items in the Performance log is a very short time. Additionally, the counter data of one item is invalid.


    This issue occurs on a computer that is running one of the following operating systems:
    • Windows Vista
    • Windows 7
    • Windows Server 2008
    • Windows Server 2008 R2
    Cause:
    This issue occurs because there is a time difference between the two methods that are used to calculate a new time after data collection occurs.

    The time difference between the methods is a very short time. However, the Performance Logs and Alerts service incorrectly triggers data collection because of this small time difference. Therefore, the issue that is described in the "Symptoms" section occurs.

    Request Hotfix:
    Duplicated data may be in the Performance log when you use the Performance Logs and Alerts service to collect performance data in Windows Server 2008, in Windows Vista, in Windows 7, or in Windows Server 2008 R2

    NEW ONES!
    Those ones had been officially putted on Microsoft Download Center but are optional:

    -Windows crashes when you run applications that use the D3D and GDI Interop surfaces on a computer that has multiple monitors attached and is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2:

    Symptoms:
    You use a Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM) 1.1 graphics adapter on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. The computer has multiple monitors attached. In this scenario, Windows crashes when you run applications that use the D3D and GDI Interop surfaces. For example, Windows crashes when you use the latest version of Windows Live Essentials and certain games.

    Cause:
    This issue occurs because of a pool corruption. This corruption occurs in GDI surfaces during display resolution changes.

    -September 2010 cumulative time zone update for Windows operating systems

    Important:
    This update supersedes and replaces update 981793, which was released in May 2010. This update also includes additional time zone changes that were signed in to law after update 981793 was created.

    If you have already deployed update 981793, read the descriptions of the specific time zone changes that are addressed in this article to determine whether you must deploy this update immediately. If systems are not directly affected, you can schedule deployment at the next available opportunity.

    We recommend that you deploy the most current Windows cumulative time zone update to guarantee the consistency of the time zone database on all systems.

    This one is a little of a workaround:

    Windows Vista and Windows 7 Black Screen on Computer Unlock:

    Symptoms:
    Consider the following scenario:

    1. A Windows Vista or Windows 7 computer is running the “Aero” graphics mode.
    2. The Windows Vista or Windows 7 computer is subject to additional security restrictions and security software, such as might be the case in the enterprise, or with mandated security settings and software such as DISA or DoD requirements.
    3. The computer is locked and left undisturbed long enough for the screen to go black, which is 20 minutes with the default power policy of “Balanced”.
    4. A person unlocks the computer by entering their user credentials.

    After the credential are entered the screen goes black, and remains black for as much as 10 minutes or longer. The machine is not “hard-locked”, as periodic disk-drive activity may be noted from the disk-drive indicator light on the computer, if so equipped.

    Cause:
    A problem with some layer of security software causes the Desktop Window Manager to wait for an unspecified amount of time.

    Resolution:
    1. A temporary workaround is to Stop and Disable the “Desktop Window Manager Session Manager” service. Disabling this service will turn off the “Aero” graphics display feature, which will disable certain features such as Aero Peek, Aero Snap, Aero Shake, and so on. To disable this service:
    a. Click the Start button, type “services.msc” and then press the ENTER key, or click the icon that comes up under “Programs” in the Instant Search box.
    b. Locate and then double-click the Desktop Window Manager Session Manager service.
    c. Locate the “Startup type” dropdown and change the value to “disabled”.
    d. Locate and click the button labeled “Stop”.
    e. Click the Apply button, and then click the OK button.

    Alternatively you can run the following commands from an elevated CMD prompt to set the service properties of the Desktop Window Manager Session Manager service to not running and disabled:


    net stop UxSms
    sc config UxSms start= disabled

    To return the settings for the Desktop Window Manager Session Manager service to normal via the CMD line:


    sc config UxSms start= auto
    net start UxSms
