Didn't have one lick of problems with downloading SP1 on my desktop or laptop!
Downloaded the smaller files separately/rebooted then ran the big SP1 file by itself.
Maybe it was helpful that earlier today I ran updates on MBAM and SuperAntiSpy and ran quick scan( found nothing).
But the key is to DOWNLOAD SP1 BY ITSELF!!

Agreed, install it alone. Mine went without fault and a clean install of Win 7 may not have hurt either even though I had a ton of updates waiting for other things like Office since it was a clean install.

That's how I download any SP in stand alone form either the msi, exe, or dvd iso. For 7 I'm going for two along with the dvd iso to see how things go.

Worked perfect for me I guess I am one of the lucky ones. I updated everything I could before downloading SP1. But yes, it seems as though I am having the same problems as other people. My startup is a couple seconds slower, and my CPU resources are a bit higher at idle than before... Maybe a fix in the future?

I have tried downloading the SP1 on the website but it gave me an error and then reverted back during the configuration part. Should i download via the windows update, it's so slow.

On the download page you will find the iso image for both 32bit and 64bit combined, two separate msi forms for each, and the stand alone exe types for both flavors(32, 64bit). Which did you go for? if the exe try the msi or if msi try the exe.

Apparently the size differences on the msi are due to the latest few updates just seen added on to each second donwload link. You can try it through the updates being just the SP by itself to see if that works. You may want to look over the steps to take before the next try to see if that helps. Steps to follow before you install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 from the Microsoft Download Center

Haven't really noticed anything different so far....isn't it just one big collection of all the previously released updates though?
Even with the SP1 RTM installed (on January 15th), I still received these updates:

Attachment 140062

(sorry if I'm repeating an experience already presented in this thread - I've been gone a few weeks)
Both of those updates were release on 2/21/2011 after SP1 was final. First one was a reliability update and the other was for printing XPS files.

Thanks, Jim (Phone Man), much appreciated!
