    That's why they recommended taking benchmarks before and after with xperf. You do have two days to spare to learn that tool don't you? (I did start trying to learn it in the evenings, but once the hotfixes had empirically resolved the issues I was seeing I totally bailed on that)

    FWIW I haven't noticed much/any difference from the patches I had already deployed. However.... it is feasible that new fastest boot time might be slower than the original W7 Sp1 boot time for systems that were not impacted by the bugs/behaviours contained therein. How slow is it for you now?

    I have a vague memory that at some point I saw machines 'hanging' during start up after one of the TCPIP stack updates. It was solved by installing the latest drivers (which were released about a week after that hotfix). This anecdote may contain no useful information.

    As for your i3 refusing to install, is it definitely running sp1? Is the hotfix the right architecture, is it possible you grabbed the 32bit version on that machine by mistake?

    Will look at the drivers issue but could be a deal breaker as I have no time to update drivers on every machine.
    I'm sure I grabbed the right version and I did the windows update bit before I tried to install it but I will look again.

    Not true @Michael. RM uses WSUS, and you can import this update into WSUS, if you wished. ;-)

    Have they changed it, I thought that running non-sanctioned updates was likely to break it and at the least likely to void your support.

    I've rolled out updates and still been supported, but if you're unsure, check.

    For those using SCCM you need to import this update in WSUS as @Valyyn instructed (I know I know that usually you are told to avoid configuring WSUS directly but you have to here).
    You have to make sure you are syncing the 'update' classification, then just sync and it appears in the update list.

    Yes, it was tested like the printer rollup hotfix was...review the hotfix text: This article describes a hotfix rollup for Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)-based and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1-based computers. This hotfix rollup contains 90 hotfixes that were released after the release of SP1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. These hotfixes improve the overall performance and system reliability of Windows 7 SP1-based and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1-based computers. We recommend that you apply this hotfix rollup as part of your regular maintenance routine and build processes for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 computers."

    What settings are those? I only ask because I'm still having some very random issues of proxy settings not applying correctly on wireless devices.

    Oh I see. Yeah this is a rollup from Microsoft, we tested it pretty thoroughly so hopefully ISVs and software providers will do the same. It should help things out across enterprise environments really.
