Is this File Kept up to date with the latest service patch or is this like the original version I'm asking because I have My disk and everything but I would like using a more updated installer to reduce the visits to windows update (I will have already reinstalled but would still like the question answered for future reference and if it is updated can the time stamp be added to the Iso file name on the page?)
File in question being Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit download Link above as there no way for me to check file sizes versions without downloading and burning a disk and comparing it against my win 7 64 bit ultimate disk as I reformat regularly to clear out junk files and windows accumulative issues.
