As for me, I do have that off topic question about why it's difficult to find a Microsoft Download page for the SP2 for Win7 Microsoft made under pressure from people a few months ago.
I had never heard of an SP2 for windows 7 (beyond rumor that is) so I went and took a look. According to http://arstechnica.com/information-...w-has-a-service-pack-2-but-dont-call-it-that/ it is called a "convenience rollup" and info can be found Here. There do seem to be alot of caveats and known issues, but the fixes are listed. It is worth noting however, that this page did not lead me to a download link. It directed me to the download center which did not return the results I was looking for, ie the convenience rollup for Windows 7. Many other rollups, but not the right one unfortunately.
A little more looking turned up https://www.thurrott.com/windows/67...ig-difference-windows-7-updating-still-broken which has a bit about the rollup in the middle of the article with a working link. The filename is windows6.1-kb3125574-v4-x64 ... which incidentally is written about by microsoft, but not available in the downloads.
