MS hits refresh on Windows 7 SP1 for select few
Build 7601.17077 takes partners by the hand
Microsoft pumped out fresh beta builds of its first service packs for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 late last week.
The company released Windows SP1 public betas for the firm’s current operating system at its annual partner shindig in July this year.
Last Friday it hit refresh on the beta by spinning out build 7601.17077 to a group of testers, as reported by ZDNet’s Mary Jo-Foley.
Microsoft said in July that it planned to release the first service packs for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 in the first half of 2011.
The vendor hasn’t pinned down an exact date yet, but some have predicted that SP1 for both products could land ahead of schedule.
As for what will be loaded into the service packs, customers can expect some minor security updates and other fixes. Additionally, computers running Windows 7 SP1 and servers running Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 will get the new RemoteFX feature, which delivers Direct3D acceleration to users on thin clients.
Elsewhere, Redmond has slotted Dynamic Memory – or on-the-fly adjustment of e memory allocation of running virtual machines – into the server service pack for anyone using Hyper-V virtualisation. ®
Looks more like 3rd party driver issues. Same old same old...of course could be a million & 1 things. Hell I have had Linux reboot everytime I visted certain sites. Again, duff drivers.
It is Microsoft's fault.

By the simple, non-twisted logic that it's MS' fault.
Flash can crash - that's down to Adobe. It might even take down the browser - that's understandable, as the browser was relying on it.
But taking down the whole machine? That's an unstable OS.
No chance cornz...
I'm leaving the firewalls alone after that.
Never had trouble with windows firewall, so why replace it?
