Specs: Windows 7, Intel Core i3-4005U CPU @ 1.70GHz
I was a long and satisfied user of Windows XP, When new Windows OSs were launched, I tried them but was never satisfied until Windows 7 came out. I have been a satisfied user of Windows 7 and its SP1. Again I tried later Windows OSs, but soon left them to return to Windows 7. Recently Microsoft started to push "nagware" to entice upgrade to Windows 10, which I have tried and don't like.

To avert an unintentional upgrade to Windows 10, I installed GWX Control Panel (http://ultimateoutsider.com/downloads/), which works well, although I check every update Microsoft pushes its nagware, sometimes even as a "critical" update.

Microsoft has now announced regular roll-ups to SP1 for win 7 named "Convenience rollup update for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1", which can be found at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us... and which is said to be free of the "nagware"updates. An SP1 for Windows 7 together with this new rollup, would make a clean re-install much less time consuming.

Does anybody have experience with this and what are their valuations.

✔ Best Answer
I haven't tried the roll-up yet but I downloaded both the 32-bit & 64-bit versions on the day they were released. I plan on using them if/when the time comes for a clean install.

Someone should probably mention the roll-up contains a number of hotfixes that never made their way into the official update channels, so it might be worth it to run the update on an up to date Win7 install. Just make sure you go to lunch when start the post-patch reboot.
