Windows Live Essentials that updates Windows Live Messenger to the fail new version? If so I may pass on it (even though this is a mistake security wise).

Why would it? Windows 7 (and Vista) doesn't include Windows Messenger, so why would the service pack?

I may have gotten confused with the updates as it was an important update. The Important Update was for Windows Live Essentials (the pack of programs you had to download separately). And I assumed it included all "important" updates including the Essentials update because it was labeled as "important".

Windows 7 SP2 includes both a roll-up of OS updates and several new goodies, including RemoteFX.

Should it not be SP1?

That should have read "SP1."

According to the "Hotfixes and Security Updates included in Windows 7 and Windows 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 Release Candidate" document on Microsof's site the KB971033 update is included in this SP.

Built-in USB 3.0 support?

Haha, we wish. For some reason, I highly doubt that 3.0 will be included.
