comment Does Windows disk management destroy data?
That is correct. Windows will not be able to shrink a volume if there is data in the way. It's irrelevant if you want to expand a volume. And, either way, no: Windows will not destroy your data. Windows would rather not do something if it cannot be done safely.

comment Windows 7 SP1 not being offered on Windows Update
In the end, a support engineer will be in no better position to solve the problem than i am. i contacted support for an issue once; i got to listen to him mumble to himself as he googled. After four days he suggested re-installing Windows. i insisted that we find an actual solution.

Apparently i'm out of my 1 year of free support (The product ID number you entered has expired. Please enter another product ID number or select a different support option below.). It's $59 otherwise.

comment Windows 7 SP1 not being offered on Windows Update
@max My 64-bit work machine is not being offered the update. Five colleague's 64-bit machines are offered the update. My home 64-bit machine was offered the update. A version of Windows 7 running inside Virtual PC (i.e. 32-bit) was offered the update. The only one not being given the update is my particular work computer.

i ran the "Fix it for me" tool, and rebooted. Didn't fix it. i followed the manual instructions (which were not designed for Windows 7, or 64-bit Windows). Didn't fix it.

i'm not sure what your answer is saying (in terms of providing an answer), but i have run "Check for updates". Updated original question with screenshots.

comment Why is text blurred when I rotate the screen?
This answer is probably correct. Although Windows might recognize that the physical display orientation is rotated, and switch the Anti-Alias method of font smoothing, rather than ClearType.
