Microsoft is finally making it easier to reinstall Windows 7 from scratch with a new Service Pack SP that the company refuses to call a service pack.
Windows 7 may not be available to most of us anymore, but there are many reasons to reinstall the operating system on existing Windows 7 PCs, and Microsoft never released a Service Pack after Windows 7 Service Pack 1's release in early 2011.
Microsoft recently announced the availability of the Windows 7 SP1 convenience roll-up.
In other words, if you don t know about the convenience roll-up you re still in for a world of tedious updates.
Monthly rollups for everyone
Adding more roll-up fun for the future, Microsoft plans to create monthly roll-ups of non-security fixes for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 from now on.
Microsoft plans to support other browsers with non-ActiveX functionality later this summer.
