Upgrading to 8.1?

Maybe Iv been locked in to fixing Windows 7, but will an upgrade to 8.1 fix the no SP1 problem? Is it simply a matter of clicking the download button and waiting? Im sick of trying to fix 7.

Hi,
What fixing of win-7 ?
Do you have a clean install disk ?
If your install media doesn't have sp1 on it you can download one that does from here
Just make sure you get the home premium x86 that is what you show on your system spec's :/

Only get Adobe for the Adobe official site. Torrents are not needed.
What Adobe product are you having problems with?

I don't care what Windows operating system you use but when you start using torrents for downloads their is a good chance you will mess any of them up.

also i would like to add, before you download and try to install windows 8.1 , google your laptop model and see if drivers are available for your laptop, your specs has no info on model of your laptop..

You don`t use Adobe to open an ISO file.

Why can`t you simply download SP1 through Windows update ?

You should have installed SP1 a long time ago.

If you don`t want to fix Windows 7 or can`t, then just reinstall it, don`t install Windows 8.1 you will hate it, not to mention you`ll have to buy it.

Just download the version you need from here and burn to dvd at no more then x4 speed using this free program.

x86 means 32 bit x64 means 64 bit

I'm not quite sure how we got from Windows 7 SP-1 to Windows 8.1 to Adobe torrent.

My simple answer is as AddRAM suggested. Do a clean install of Windows 7 with SP-1.
