Rumors are that it will part of SP1. By normal means, I don't think you can uninstall a portion of a service pack.

Remember the idea behind WAT being include in SP1 is at the moment just a rumor. However, if Microsoft decides to include it then at that point it will be difficult to stop WAT from finding and letting you know you computer is running an illegal copy of Win 7.

Being that Microsoft has already indicated this will not be a huge update (only minor fixes) then you may be safe not installing the SP. Albeit, it is up to the individual to decide in which direction they will go.

MS usually lists what is contained in a Service Pack and what it does.

First by loading the SP1 update then restarting your computer then all of a sudden the screen goes black, and there is a message that states, "YOUR COMPUTER IS RUNNING A ILLEGAL VERSION OF WINDOWS 7 IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO USE YOUR COMPUTER PLEASE GO DOWN TO YOUR LOCAL COMPUTER OUTLET AND BUY A COPY OF WINDOWS 7. OH, YEAH ALL OF YOUR DATA AND INFORMATION WILL NOW BE LOST, AND WE ARE NOT SORRY FOR THAT. HAPPY COMPUTING."

Are you saying that your copy of Windows Seven is not legitimate?
