Windows 7/2008 R2 SP1

Published by hirantha at 8:25 PM under Microsoft | Security | Windows 7

The very first service pack for Windows 7 should be popping into your Windows Update right around now. There are few areas that might cause some issues. Here’s what to watch for.

  • Whitelisting / Blacklisting: Whitelisting software may not have checksums yet to verify all the files that are modified by the service pack.
  • Firewalls: Third party firewalls may find that some of the low level hooks they use have changed.
  • Disk Encryption: In particular full disk encryption that modifies the boot process may find that some of the changes it did are undone by the SP install
  • Custom hardware: If you are using drivers other then those that are included in Windows 7 (or 2008 R2)
  • Dual boot : Linux dual boot might cause some issues
