Thread: Service Pack 1

    Default Service Pack 1

    I tried to install 'Windows Vista Service Pack 1, but it failed.

    Wiindows update no longer lists this pack.

    Th pack was listed as important, so can I install it from another
    site. Or, can it now be left because it is no longer listed in Windows
    Update.

    Thanks

    No, you're going to want SP1. You need to find out why it failed and fix
    that.

    Since you didn't give any information about the failure (error messages,
    etc.) I can't point you to a specific fix. I suggest you look here to start
    your troubleshooting:

    Update and is not offered by Automatic Updates

    I am certainly no expert, but I was told to disable my avti virus program.
    Once I did that, it installed just fine.

    Not true. If you do not install SP1, you will not be able to install the
    soon-to-come SP2.

    SP1 made Vista more stable for me. Worth installing it just for that.

    Thanks for all the responses.

    Does SP1 increase the level of pc security?

    SP1 now installed.

    What do people mean by more stable?

    Best wishes
