    For the benefit of anyone browsing the site and finding this - in respect of Windows 7 SPI the process will be taken care of by
    IF you do not have automatic update - downloading and installing turned on, then you need to ensure that this update made available on patch Tuesday for March is installed

    Will there be an ability for this update to be downloaded and saved to a folder?

    Probably not :D

    But if anyone reinstalls Win7 after July 16, they are going to need a way to do those updates.
    I'd like to grab that update just in case ( next to nothing chance LOL! ) I might need to use Win7 online again.
