Well it IS service pack 1 KB976932 that was installed.
SFC found no problems
It was installed via Windows Update (if I remember correctly)
I run malware bytes about once a week and have been doing so prior to SP1
@marsmimar - R U talking about uninstalling SP1 or Win 7 itself? But the answer to both is no. I might try uninstalling SP1 for a test but it isn't worth uninstalling Windows 7 because it doesn't 'appear' to really be affecting anything.
Is it possible to do a 'dirty' install of SP1 or will it fail when it sees it's already installed?
Again, this really is more a curiousity thing than a real problem. I've worked on windows computers for about 25yrs now and have never failed to fix one. If someone came to me with this "problem" I would probably just tell them not to worry after trying a few things.
Maybe I'll download the service pack and try to re-install and see what happens.
