Default [Important] Windows 7 SP1 now available

Today the long awaited service pack for Windows 7 has been released to the world. This is the very first service pack for the Windows 7 OS. As we have previously reported, there will be only a few new features that many users may not notice. One of those features is RemoteFx, which provides rich 3-D graphical experience for remote users.

Ready to download SP1 for Windows 7? As of this news post, only the ISO which contains the service pack installers for x86, x64 and ia64 is available. As the others become available, we'll be sure to update this post with the links. Until such time, the ISO is available and we'll provide the link.

It's highly recommended to get the service pack update from Windows Update. Simply access your Control Panel and click on Windows Update. If no updates are showing up, click Check for Updates. If your Windows Update is not working then we recommend running the Microsoft Fixit for Windows Update.

Thanks for the info and links, not sure if I should update yet or wait until it's proven to be totally worth it. I only use a pc for gaming. Don't wanna do anything to mess it up at the moment.

From what ive seen the bulk of the service pack is security updates.

From what I've seen, MS's download server is overloaded.

Also, it seems that the failed download somehow convinced my copy of windows that it's not genuine anymore. Good job MS... Anyone know how to reset the genuine check on win 7 short of a reinstall?

And downloading and installing the standalone executable seems to have fixed it.

No problems downloading it here, other than completely resetting all my program defaults and WMP settings. And it didn't fix the one problem I've been having that I hope it would fix.

That is incorrect. The service pack includes numerous fixes that were not released to the public via Windows Update.
