Will this mess that up, or will SP1 overwrite the files that were installed in the previous attempt


Is the PC still running, what happened when she removed it?

You'll need to start a new thread if there's issues.

The tool I think you are talking about is really meant for businesses to stave off a mass upgrade, it postpones the upgrade for a while.

The public release to Windows Update will be the 22nd Feb and no doubt a standalone download should be announced around the same time or very shortly thereafter.

The SP shouldn't prove a difficult installation but it's usually a good idea to temporarily disable your anti-virus to accommodate it.
Ok Ex-Brit problem is my lappy is set to auto UD and as I work shift work it might be a matter of watching as soon as I boot up. Plus my lappy has that InstalShield thngy on it and I don't want it doing anything without my ok - UAC is set for jst about everything as I am a bit paranoid re dowmloads these days having only ben rying to get a bit more savvy in the last few months.

A bit OT but am just wondering where this InstalShield app came from a I don't remember downloading it!

On my PC it randomly (i.e. not every time):
  • Scrolls the Navigation Tree selection to the bottom of the screen.
  • Forgets to open at full screen despite being set to maximised.

Does it compact the winsxs folder?

From within Windows 7, How do we verify what version of SP1 we are running? I ask, because RTM was released on the 16th, yet I installed in a week prior. I am not sure if what I installed was a beta or a RC. Thanks
