Its created the partition, I can see that, but I assume its still copying stuff over or something because it shows up as a blank, "healthy (primary partition)"

Stupid!! There are many security vulnerabilities fixed in it.

I hope SP1 wasn't installed and the sysprep fix will fix your problems.
Does Partition Wizard say how long it takes to finish? Or does it say some percentage and can you calculate it yourself?

I have not had a single problem with security in over 2 years now, and I'm very slack about it. In my opinion it just takes some common sense and you're fine.

So is it bad if I have SP1 installed or not? you contradict yourself there.

Partition Wizard gives no times, but I can tell its gonna take a while. Its now copying G, at 1%, its been maybe 20 minutes? While to go yet :P

You didn't have a single probl;em with security... hahahaha lol. How do you know??? Hackers and websites can damage you OS without you noticing it.

If you have SP1 you already have the fix, so the fix doesn't fix it. That's why I hope SP1 and so the fix isn't installed yet

1% in 20 minutes???? So maybe 1.99% in 20 minutes. So 1% in 10 minutes. Takes at least 1000 minutes if it's correct

It can be damaged but I don't think so yet. Please make a recalculation how long it takes. For example how long does it take from 2 to 3%?
