Where is Service Pack 1 for Windows 7?

+1 vote
152 views

I have Windows 7 64 bit, and all updates are installed. I cannot download IE 10, as it says I need Service Pack 1, which, as far as my PC is concerned, is non-existent.

I have checked ALL the installed updates (guess how long that took!) - I have the Service packs for my Office version, so where or what is Service Pack 1 for Windows 7, or is it a figment of the MS imagination?

Just do a update search and you will see it there now.

Check here:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/service-packs-download#sptabs=win7

or here:

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5842

For the above, I think the file to download is "Windows_Win7SP1.7601.17514.101119-1850.AMD64CHK.Symbols.msi", 262.7MB.

Or, you can download the whole .iso, burn it to a DVD and run it from there and it will do the rest. I use the .iso version and let it decide which version needs installing.

You should be able to run Windows Update {from your Start Menu} and Windows Service Pack 1 should be listed as an available update.

Generally, Microsoft never installs Service Packs without some action / response on your part. Service Packs are large in size {e.g., 8.1 upgrade from 8.0 is 3+ GB!} and intrusive to whatever work you are doing {requires rebooting}.

I am able to see the absolute (exact) time on Win-XP of a file when it was last modified in hours, minutes, and seconds ("Today, May 11, 2014, 6:06:09 AM") by displaying the file properties.

On Windows 7, it displays the time as relative and a rough estimate ("Today, May 11, 2014, 2 hours ago"). How do I change it so it displays absolute time like Windows XP.

I have Flash Player installed on my Win7 machine, latest version. Every time I attempt to open a video that depends on Flash I get inundated with the warning that I need to upgrade Flash to the latest version, no matter how many times I do so.
How to stop this irritation? How to get Flash to work the way its supposed to? I have totally uninstalled it via REVO, reinstalled it but same results.
