You want to improve performance of your Windows OS but don’t know where to begin? This rollup is a good starter – it might improve the performance of your Windows 7 SP1 PC or Windows 2008 R2 Server!
Every now and than an update/hotfix is released to address potential performance issue with Windows 7 SP1 and/or Windows Server 2008 R2. The good news: 90 of these updates now have been combined in one big rollup packages resolving many SBLS* issues.
