Microsoft distributes bug fixes in service packs. Service packs help keep a product current, and extend and update the functionality of your computer. Service packs include updates, and may include system administration tools, drivers, and additional components, which are conveniently bundled for easy downloading. Service packs are cumulative; each new service pack contains all the fixes that are in previous service packs, and any new fixes.
