  Windows 7 SP1 will change the version number from 6.1.7600 to 6.1.7601.

  NOTE: Security updates listed here will be grouped by each year they were released.

   NOTE: It is not necessary to download & install all of the updates listed on my page.  You are not required
              to install them unless your system has suffered serious problems.  Make sure you download the
              patches for the correct operating system.  You can uninstall most system updates from your system
              if they cause more problems than they fix.

  I've made this page simply for informational purposes and to make downloading updates faster & easier.  All the updates for
  Windows 7 listed here can be installed under any edition except for the 64-bit (ia64/x64) versions.
  Before installing any Win7 updates, be sure to activate and validate your copy of Windows 7.

  Key = Windows 7 is Windows NT 6.1.7600.16385 - installing Service Pack 1 will change the version to 6.1.7601.17514.
            SP - Service Pack, NT - New Technology or Network, IIS = Internet Information Server, Cli. = Client
            RDP - Remote Desktop Protocol, AKB - ActiveX Killbits, MSI - Microsoft Installer / Windows Installer
            WMC - Windows Media Center

  [a little star * indicates a new system update; the <> symbol means to install a patch with caution because it may have a
   possible side effect; I am not responsible if the updates you download here do more harm than good]

Other Updates & Add-ons for Windows 7:

Notes: Since Windows 7 no longer includes the old Windows Help Viewer to view help files with the .HLP file extension, download
and install the WinHlp32.exe Help Program to restore the ability to view .HLP help files in Win7.  The KB2670838, KB2729094,
KB2731771, KB2786081, KB2834140, KB2882822 & KB2888049 updates are needed before installing IE10/IE11 on Win7 SP1.
<> - The KB2670838 Platform Update for Win7 SP1 may cause blue screen errors on computers with certain AMD/Intel hybrid
graphics hardware.  Download and install updated AMD/Intel hybrid video drivers that are compatible with the KB2670838 update
and install the KB2834140 update.  The KB3033929 SHA-2 update may cause problems on dual-boot systems with Win7 and
any Linux-based OS installed and the default OS boot loader is a non-Windows kind.

^ - The KB2952664 & KB3035583 updates require an active or working internet connection to download the online web content
for the Windows 10 upgrade offer during installation of these two updates.  Otherwise the "Get Windows 10" App from the
KB3035583 update will not work correctly or not display the Get Windows 10 Tray icon on the taskbar as noted in MS KB article
3081048Do NOT install the
KB2952664 & KB3035583 updates "offline" or without an internet connction available.

Other sites to find system updates and/or info for Windows 7:

Notes: Any downloads for Windows Seven (7) are found from its Windows Update feature.  By default, Win7 may be setup to download and install system updates automatically while connected to the Internet.  To turn the feature off [if you're annoyed by it] open the Control Panel, select the Windows Update control panel applet, click on the Change Settings link and select the option that says "Never Check for Updates (not recommended)", then click Ok to save your settings.  Disabling the Automatic Updates feature by using that method will cause the Action Center feature to display some annoying pop-up messages that Automatic Updates was turned off, so open up Action Center, click on "Change the way Security Center alerts me" link to bring up the Alert Settings dialog box, uncheck the checbox next to Automatic Updates.  Then click OK to save changes and close the Security Center window and Security Center will no longer display popup messages that Automatic Updates was disabled.
