An enterprise hotfix rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 has been released which contains 90 hotfixes released after the release of Service Pack 1. These hotfixes improve the overall performance and system reliability of Windows 7 SP1-based and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1-based computers. We recommend customers to apply this hotfix rollup as part of their regular maintenance routine and build processes for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 computers.

This update is available from the Microsoft Update Catalog. Type 2775511 in the search field that is located in the upper-right corner of the catalog webpage.
Will it not be available as a part of the regular update?
Cannot see anywhere that this applies to SBS 2011 Standard (checked on the KB article and it does not include SBS Server)?
thank you for the update and the article! But is there a list of the 90 included hotfixes?
Okay i found the list of the Hotfixes that are included in this update rollup under support.microsoft.com/.../EN-US.
There's many worthy hotfixes included in this pack. Very generous of Microsoft to put out such an update. Would still be great to see Service Pack 2 for 7 & 2008 R2. It's a shame that this and RDP 8.0 won't be made available for Server 2008, and by extension Small Business Server 2008, however.
SBS 2011 is built on Server 2008 R2 which this update applies to.
This is good news. The amount of patches that needed to be installed on a new install of Windows 7 w/ SP1 was getting to be a bit ridiculous at over 100. Next best thing to a SP2 which will likely never happen because that would extend the support lifecycle of Windows 7.
It would be good to know if this will be a part of regular updates and supercede the 100 updates that automatic updates detects on a new install or if you should disable automatic updates and manually install this rollup first.

This is not offered up via Microsoft update. It only will be deployed if you install it manually.
This seemed to fix the haunting Red-X issue I'd been having with network shares and mapped drives.
I'm guessing that comes back. The mapped drives issue with the red x is a cosmetic thing.
