I'm sorry. Somehow I did not see your last sentence ......
" Oh and I'm also a little computer illiterate so i don't know what SP1 means "

SP1 is Service Pack 1 for Windows 7. ( Not the Vista counterpart. Not the MS Office service packs. )
It is to be offered to you via your Windows Update center.
If you were offered SP 1, you would have been notified from Windows Update center.
If you have not received the notification, then please wait. Maybe your machine is not ready for it.
It is best that you install it when it is offered to you, rather than going to MS Download Center looking for it.
P.S. I was never offered the SP1. I had to go to MS Download Center to install it.

How do you know if you already have Windows 7 SP1 ?
Start button > Computer > toolbar at top, click System Properties > under Windows Edition, it will tell you if you have SP1 or not. See my screenshot...

t-4-2,

Another quick way to find out which version and whether the service pack is installed is:

| type WINVER | ENTER

My way of giving answers/suggestions is " user oriented ".

If I were to suggest something to you, I would just simply say, for example, " your user profile could be corrupted ". I know that you know how to prove or disprove my suggestion.

If I were to give the same suggestion to a novice, I would have to give step by step instructions.

It is better to show the novice the " traditionaln ways " so they have a chance to feel their way through various applications.
To give a novice a " short cut " is to show " how to run " before " how to walk ".
