Back in January 2010, when we announced the possibility of Windows 7 SP1 being released soon, many people were surprised. Few days later we got hold of the leaked screenshots which proved that the information is not a rumor. And mid-last month, a leaked version of Windows 7 SP1 made rounds on blogosphere and the torrent sites. Now again, a new version of Windows 7 Service Pack 1 has been leaked on the torrent websites carrying the Build 7601.16556.
Blogsdna reports that
