  1. Microsoft still hasn't announced a release date for the first Windows 7 Service Pack, but apparently it can't be too far off judging by a recently leaked version of the code. Technology blog GeekSmack was able to get hold of a copy of a Windows 7 SP1 beta build and posted some pictures to prove it. Marked 6.1.7601.16537.amd64fre.win7.100327-0053, it appears the file was compiled very recently, on March 27, using an AMD 64-bit system.

    other than the version number by the clock, is there anything else to note?

    What about the Windows Activation Technology hotfix that was "optional" a couple of months back? Is it auto-installed in the SP1, or is it not included still?

    Hope this patch fixes a couple of annoyances?

    Eh... I'll avoid it until its final. Wasn't the Vista SP leaked and whoever used it couldn't install the actual release? Plus, I don't want a watermark, I just BARELY got that off my desktop a month ago.
     
  8. Hopefully it fixes some issues I'm experiencing.Like the wmp sharing thing wich tatally hogs up my 4gb of ram and e8400 at 4.0,uses it all like i'm doing a benchmark test or prime 95.....ridiculous!
     
  9. @theoscentral You should be able to change the value of HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\PaintDesktopVersion to 0, log off or restart and it'll be gone.
