The second Monthly Rollup for Windows 7 is now available for download. This update brings many security updates and quality improvements, but no new operating system features.

Windows 7 Monthly Rollup KB3197868 brings security updates to the following Windows components: Microsoft Graphics Component, kernel-mode drivers, Microsoft Video Control, common log file system driver, Windows authentication methods, Windows operating system, Windows File Manager, Windows registry, OpenType, Internet Explorer 11, and Windows Component.

For the time being, the support page for KB3197868 is not available. In other words, we don’t really know what the specific security improvements are. Most likely, the support page should be available tomorrow since Microsoft usually publishes it 24 hours after updates hit the spotlight.

Many users will definitely wait until tomorrow before installing the latest Windows 7 updates. Judging by the Windows 7 update experience of many users, this is the best decision to take. Windows updates often bring issues of their own, and users need to know what they install before hitting the update button.

Monthly Rollup KB3197868 also includes the content of the latest Windows 7 update, KB3197867. Again, the support page for KB3197867  is not available, so the exact content of this update remains unknown. Microsoft’s Update Catalog describes the update rather vaguely:

A security issue has been identified in a Microsoft software product that could affect your system. You can help protect your system by installing this update from Microsoft. For a complete listing of the issues that are included in this update, see the associated Microsoft Knowledge Base article.

We’ll update this article as soon as Microsoft reveals the complete listing of the issues included in these updates.

[UPDATE] The support pages for KB3197867 and KB3197868 are now available. Check them out to see the complete listing of fixes and improvements that are included in these updates.
