After clicking continue I am taken to the Genuine Windows Validation tool page which must be completed before download of SP 1 is allowed. (tested in FF and IE 9 RC)

sorry forgot to mention, in firefox, the first click took me to that page, when I run the tool it ays failed as obselete and to download up to date version of tool. 2nd attempts onward in firefox doesnt take me to that page anymore.

however I got it working now in IE, I reset my security settings to default and now it installed an activex addon which worked fine, thanks.
