    I think release of a Windows 7 service pack doesn’t worrying you too much because the original Windows 7 RTM is good enough for the users. And frequent Download 7601.17514.101119-1850release of updates make Windows 7 even more stronger than other operating systems. But its more than 15 months after the release of original Windows 7, so the time is arrived for Microsoft guys to make an exclusive update of Windows 7 without effecting the system's integrity. They released the beta and RC of Windows 7 service pack 1 few months ago but then we heard nothing from them. But last week it seems that various torrent sites give the users Windows 7 Service Pack 1 RTM for downloading. The Windows 7 SP1 build number is 7601.17514.101119-1850, the download size is 538 Megabytes for Windows 7 SP1 32-bit and 903 Megabytes for Windows 7 SP1 64-bit. Where original Windows 7 build number is 7600.16385.090713-1255.

    And from our experience about Windows 7 pre-release time we can easily clarify that this Windows 7 SP1 build is original. Another well-known download portal, Softpedia also offers download links for both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the service pack 1. The downloads are hosted on the Softpedia server which means that the files are free from any kind of viruses.

    The Windows 7 Service Pack 1 will introduce a few new features to the original operating system, Such as:
    1. Additional support for communication with third-party federation services
    2. Improved HDMI audio device performance
    3. Corrected behavior when printing mixed-orientation XPS documents
    4. Enhanced support for additional identities in RRAS and IPsec
    5. Support for Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX)
    6. Change to behavior of “Restore previous folders at logon” functionality.
    But it seems that most of the users wait until the service pack is officially released by Microsoft. Only users who need the additional functionality and users who want to test it may benefit from downloading and installing the leaked version directly.

    The service pack can only be installed on Windows 7 systems that do not have another version of the service pack installed.
