    THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT WIN7SP1

    Post  Peppies™ on 14th March 2011, 09:19

    Since Microsoft has finally released the much awaited sp1 to its windows 7 operating system, here's what one must expect .

    Installing windows 7 sp1 is NOT mandatory as it is firstly an optional update under windows update and that if you have updated windows 7 in the past, then you have most of what is to be expected.

    Windows 7 sp1 takes about 30 mins to install depending upon your internet connection.

    Here's what one expects by installing it:

    1. Improved HDMI audio device performance: there’s a small update that helps reliability of HDMI audio devices after rebooting. This is listed as a feature in the release notes, but really feels like a bug fix.

    2, Corrected behavior when printing mixed-orientation XPS documents: If you’re trying to print XPS documents that have landscape and portrait pages in the same document, now they will print correctly.

    3. Change to behavior of “Restore previous folders at logon” functionality: If you used the “Restore previ
    ous folders at logon” feature in Folder Options, the folders would restore into a cascaded set of windows. Now they will restore to where they were.

    4. Support for Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX): supports a newer processor extension that improves performance for floating point intensive applications.

    5. Improved Support for Advanced Format (512e) Storage Devices: hard drive manufacturers are transitioning to a new 4KB physical sector size, and now Windows 7 supports this better.

    6. A whole bunch of updates and security hotfixes previsouly released by Microsoft, refer following documentation for further information.
