Out Now Windows 7 stability and reliability update – Out Thursday Windows 7

In what is another sign that Microsoft is starting to ramp up the updates available on Windows Update in advance of the release this Thursday there is now a new stability and reliability update available. This means ironically that Microsoft have released updates of the product to the public before they release the operating system. This update addresses the following issues:

  • When you view a PDF file that was created by using a 2007 Microsoft Office system when the document is printed, some characters are missing.
  • Emergency Alert System (EAS) message does not automatically tune in Windows Media Center. (Obviously a USA only issue)
  • You connect a secondary monitor to a computer that is running Windows 7. When the computer resumes from hibernation, a black screen is displayed.
  • Windows 7 Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP) this update limits the diagnostic information that can be collected by the CEIP.
  • You put an x86-based computer that does not have Physical Address Extension (PAE) enabled into hibernation.
  • A problem in Windows 7 affects the playback of certain media files in Windows Media Player, when Windows Media Player is started from Internet Explorer. (I think i am affected by this one)
  • On a computer that is running Windows 7, you use Windows Internet Explorer to open the certificate enrolment Web page and to install an end entity certificate. (One for the IT Professionals)
  •  

    An update is available to improve the stability and reliability of Windows 7 and of Windows Server 2008 R2
