So just to reconfirm here, if we have SP1 already, should we get this?

I do not know that it is safe to say that these have been previously installed by Windows update, as indicated in a couple previous posts. These are hot fixes not security fixes. Often these fixes have to be downloaded explicitly if you are experiencing a problem. The MUC indicates the hotfixes replaced by this update:

KB2673042
KB2714014
KB2715922
KB2723222
KB2727324
KB2727941

Just scanning update history on my home system, I don't think have been installed by Windows update automatically.

edit - its a 30M download and installed painlessly, reboot required

These would have come out after SP1 was put together, so you don't have them if that is all you have.

Most of them I believe would have come across in regular Windows Updates. There are a handful that appear to be only designed fora WSUS (or a WUS as I prefer to call it biggrin.gif). Unless you are running one and you have purposely installed them...you probably don't have them.

However, I don't think they will help anything if you are not running on a Domain. You should be able to install them manually on the client side if you download the Rollup though.

Via http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2714014 all of those seem pretty old (as in several months).

Same as for Service Packs, this is a good way to get your new system up-to-date without downloading a billion things through Windows Update (in a case of reinstall, for example).

If you use Windows Update on a regular basis then you should already have most of these. But likely not all of them. See the update to the OP.

Would like to know what kind of performance increase I could get from it for my workstations?
Just installed but haven't tested yet my VM's.

So going through the list here are the only ones that I notice that might*** impact your performance if you are not on a network domain:
Quote:

2634907
(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2634907) TCP/IP packets that are received out of sequence are discarded in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2

Overall, many of these seem very specifc issues that are not likely already affecting you, but I suppose it couldn't hurt to install them anyway (famous last words...) But you can see this much smaller list is all I could sort out as even remotely useful of the 90 total updates listed and I doubt you will see any noticeable performance gains unless you happen to be eperiencing one of these issues listed.

Nice. Going ahead and installing this on the backup domain controller; the primary has 2012.

Might as well drop it on the W7 client machines while I'm at it.

I can't remember the last time I updated Win7. I'm having no problems with it, so there is no reason to update it (unless an major flaw has been discovered).
post #20 of 20
A few of these are actually relevant to me and some others; may have had them already but it won't hurt to check. Thanks thumb.gif
