    Has anyone else noticed this?

    Windows 7 SP1 was finalized back in November (around 22nd or 23rd, I think). That means there should have been several batches of security updates, one in December and one in January. Tomorrow, the next batch (February's) of critical updates is due.

    For those of you running SP1, are you able to get critical updates? If not, what do you think the issue is? If you can, what did you do (if anything) to get them? o_O

    SP1 is not officially released yet so, there are no updates on WU.

    I thought that might be the other possibility.

    It makes you wonder doesn't it why Microsoft don't do it right from the beginning, then we wouldn't need all these security updates and hotfixes and patches and so on let alone security updates for a service pack.

    If MS were to wait until all the bugs were fixed before releasing anything, you could expect Windows 95 any day now.

    Well, it's now just a few minutes past 10:00 PST (when Microsoft releases the patches on Patch Tuesday). And there are 6 security updates being offered for Windows 7 SP1. :)

    Considering the updates, all they need to do now is something crazy like releasing SP1 itself. Not to WU (yet), but MSDN and Technet. If that doesn't happen this week, then MS is really smoking something.

    Hmm, anyone else being offered KB2393802 on SP1?!?!?!

    If you look at the KB2393802 article, it lists all the Windows 7 timestamps as being from late October (and all of them are 7600 files; there isn't a 7601 file in this update). If you look at the digital signature for the KB2393802 .msu file, you will see that it's dated November 2--over two weeks before the SP1 build date. So this is a fix that predates SP1 and was superseded by SP1. Yet it's being offered to SP1 users?!

    If it's installed it won't do anything, the windows updating system will never overwrite newer files with older ones. It might be however that that particular file wasn't updated with sp1, in that case the october one is still the latest one available and it can be updated without any problem.

    The file was updated by SP1. And that is correct, WU won't do anything. It'll just eat some bandwidth downloading it, add a registry entry saying that it was installed, and nothing else: a reboot won't even be offered, if installed on its own.

    It's just that, well, between the USB thing and now this (even though this is very minor and has no real effect), it just seems that Microsoft is a lot... sloppier than it used to be.

    MS is indeed sloppier, and I don't like it cause I have a feeling that it's not the last sloppy thing we're going to see...
    But we can't judge on this issue yet, maybe it won't be offered to sp1 systems anymore after it's officially released. Afterall we aren't supposed to have sp1 yet so we have no right speaking.

    6 updates released today for SP1. Obviously you cant get them over WU since SP1 is not offical yet, but they are "offical".
