Convenience rollup update for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 (April 2016) By: J W Stuart June 10th, 2016, Revised June 16th
The Rollup is next best thing to the never released Service Pack 2 after performing a fresh / clean install of Windows 7 with Service Pack 1. It significantly reduces the number of individual updates (which can exceed 170 or more) that need to be downloaded and installed.
Assuming that Windows 7 Service Pack 1 is already installed, follow the steps listed below:
Step #1:Speed up Windows update by installing the following updates: KB3112343, KB3102810, KB3145739 and KB3153199 KB3161664 These updates will help speed up the installation of the rollup and additional Windows Updates that are not included in the rollup which are mentioned later in this article. You can read the details on installing these 4 updates HERE and then return to this article to install the rollup update.
Click on the 'Add' button to choose the correct update date file (32 or 64Bit) and the 'view basket' button in the upper right corner. Then click on the 'Download' button to start the file download process. Browse and choose the same folder you used to store the other files you downloaded. Click 'Continue' to start the download. Depending on your Internet speed this may take a few minutes. When the download has completed click on the 'Close' button in the lower right corner.
Double click on the Rollup folder you downloaded to start the installation.
Notes: 1) You will be prompted to Restart, during which you will see the message “Configuring Windows updates”, and about at the 30% completion point your computer will reboot and continue with “Configuring Windows updates XX% complete Do not turn off your computer”. To complete installing the rollup updates Windows will automatically restart your computer a second time (no action required on your part except to log into your user account).
2) You also need at least 4 GB of free disk space to install this update. After a brand-new installation, the disk usage will increase by between 1 GB and 2 GB, depending on processor type (x86 vs. x64) and edition (Enterprise or ThinPC).
Time to complete = 20 minutes. This rollup installs 123 updates (file size = 476.9MB) for the 64Bit version and 119 updates (file size = 316MB) for the 32Bit version of Windows7.
Step #3: Install the additional updates not included in the rollup----->
