List of Standalone Updates for Post Windows 7 Service Pack 1

Windows 7 Reached End of Life in January 2020.

This guides give a list of standalone updates which should be installed post-Windows 7 SP1. If installing on a system manufactured in 2012-2016 (6th Generation Intel Processor) you are recommended to slipstream the updates and drivers as detailed in my guides:

Bootable USB 3.0 Support

OEM Cert Collection

If you are using a system with an OEM License (including OEM Downgrade Rights from Windows 8.x Pro and Windows 10 Pro) on a computer manufacturered by a major OEM such as Dell, HP, Lenovo, ASUS, Acer, Compaq, Gateway, Packard, Fujitsu, IBM, MSI, Samsung, Sony or Toshiba you are best to install Windows 7 without a Product Key and activate post installation using OEM System Locked Preinstallation – the same BIOS based Product Activation mechanism of factory settings. Doing so will save you from having to call Microsoft to activate by phone.

  1. Greetings Sir,

    Please also consider Windows Defender(mpas-fe.exe) in the above List of Standalone Updates as it cannot be download from Windows Updates directly. Everytime I time I try to install it via Windows Updates an error pop-up.
    You need to manually install it first after that further uppdates related to it can be installed with ease via WU.
