Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Arrives

This week, Microsoft released Service Pack 1 for Windows 7. The pack includes a collection of updates and security fixes for the popular Windows 7 operating system but little information has been available regarding specific changes made by applying the service pack. On clicking the information link on the Microsoft site it took us to a blank page (not the best start), we then downloaded the spreadsheet listing the changes although this was so lengthy we just held our breadth and hit the 'update' button.

It would have been nice to see some feature updates included in the service pack as had been included in previous operating system service packs but no such joy. One of the specific areas requiring patching is Media Center. Media Center appears to have various bugs after the last batch of updates was released to fix various problems, one such problem appears to be Media Center not honoring the recording start/finish padding which can be slightly frustrating with the only work-around being to enter padding information on each individual recording. Maybe the next batch of updates will resolve Media Center bugs but we wont hold our breath for that one.
