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!
InstallShield - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ok thanks mate I'll have a look in there.

Oh and our SP1 update is set for today - 22nd - always behind out here for some reason although I am not going to hold my breath that long lol!!

Hmmmmm don'y like these sorts of third party stuff have had so many screw ups in the past (and formats / reinstalls) due to this kind of thing.
Thing is I don't remember downloading it unless it came in with something else and a local forum guru out here says it's pestilence and stopped short of removing it - just ignore it.
That's hard when the thing keeps popping up everytimeone ants to downlaod say a MBAM update etc. Anyway a bit OT so wmight do a thread if I can't find one!

It should come down through Windows Update for those that did not already install any of the pre-release SP1 builds.

There should also be a standalone SP1 installer available as well, but we will not have the links to that until it's been posted at Microsoft.
