    So I did a clean install of Windows 7 this week, x64 16385. Ran windows updates - checked the build number and its still 7600.16385.

    There are patches linked here on the forums that bring the build up to 7600.16399 that I installed the last time... but what are they? Where are they from? Why aren't they on Windows update? Why doesn't the build number change from the updates on Windows update? Anyone know?? TIA.

    Most likely because those patches are beta patches, that hasn't been released yet (maybe they aren't meant for public release, of they are not ready yet)

    I was thinking maybe they are beta patches moving towards SP1...

    I just reinstalled 7 again, ran all updates, still didnt update the build. I just wonder why these patches do?

    they are beta updates, most likely not for general user consumption. They will be in SP1 if they do not get superseeded, if they were/are critical updates they will be released on patch Tuesday (tomorrow) or a later patch Tuesday.

    Most the leaked updates are limited distribution releases, not general distribution releases like those on Windowsupdate. The LDR's are only available via direct request from the relevent KB article. Only some have been released so far, but in most cases they are the same.

    I guess the next question is - do we need to install them? Is there any noticable difference?
