While Windows 7 users can install Service Pack 1 or even buy the operating system with the service pack included, all updates released after the official release of the one and only service pack for Windows 7 need to be installed individually.
This convenience rollup is intended to make it easy to integrate fixes that were released after SP1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
Microsoft will update the rollup packages regularly to add new patches and updates to them.
These rollups can also be integrated into installation media so that they are installed alongside the operating system.
It is up to the user to ensure proper backups are made of important documents and files.
