List of Standalone Updates for Post Windows 7 Service Pack 1

This is a list of recommended updates to install immediately after a clean installation of Windows 7 using the Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (Media Refresh 2011) .iso. I advise installing these even before the system drivers. The chances are your system will have no internet connectivity, so you should download these, alongside the system drivers onto a USB Flash Drive using another computer.


Note in order to perform a Clean Installation of Windows 7 on up to 6th Generation Hardware, some drivers needed to be added to the installation media post-installation such as USB 3.0 drivers and storage controller drivers so Windows 7 can at least recognise the USB ports and SSD/HDD during installation:
