For organizations that would like to temporarily prevent installation from Windows Update, Microsoft has released Windows 7 SP1 blocker tool which allows to block Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and the Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1. This tool works without disabling Windows Automatic Updates and does't block the manual installation (direct download or from CD/DVD) in case you need to install the service pack.

It can be used with:
 

  • Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (valid for 12 months following general availability of the service pack)
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (valid for 12 months following general availability of the service pack)

Supported Operating Systems:  Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2
