Question about Service Pack 1

OK, I have an individual that has been running Windows 7 HP for about
2 years now. He has updated, but he chose which ones he wanted to
install and which he didn't. Now he wants to install SP1 and wants to
know if he does that will it install all the updates that he has
already rejected, or will it detect those and not install them??

Service packs are *usually* cumulative. There have been cases in the
past where they weren't, like SP-3 for Windows XP required SP-1 (or was
it SP-2?) first be installed.

So what is this individual's escape plan to get his hard disk back to
the same state it was in before he commits brain surgery on the OS? All
the security updates and some hotfixes are rolled into the service pack.

Since the individual decided not to install certain updates which
presumably means he elected not to download them AND marked them hidden
at the Windows Update site (which modifies the local catalog) then that
individual could find out which ones they hid. Then have then review
the info for SP-1 at:

which has a link listing the security updates and hotfixes rolled into
that service pack.

Thanks Vanguard, that was kinda what I was thinking, too. He doesn't
mind picking and choosing he updates, so I told him just keep on doing
what he is doing and just forget SP1, unless he has to re-install
Windows. Why create problems when there are none? Thanks!
