I tried to open my gmail acocunt and the Asus laptop I have jsut recovered to factory settings says that my IE browser is not up to date, it should be upgraded to IE9 for vista, but I have an older version with only Service Pack 1 installed, it says in "system info" that I have Vista home basic 6.0.6001 Service pack 1 build 6001 installed, so my question is: is there a link ( I seem to remember using one before with the Acer windows XP laptop ) to install the correct service pack for the IE9 version? Grrr!!! this is taking forever to get it all back up to date, thanks LAPTOPDUNCE

OK, I can see that it is only SP2 that is avaialable for a windows Vista 32bit currently running SP1 so I am tryng to download that now, will see what happens., hope IE9 will be able to load after this, thanks LAPTOPDUNCE

dont know what happened there, its taking ages and ages to post my reply and I must have clicked on the mouse several times before the page timed out, anyway the other laptop, the Asus, is now running IE9 with SP2 very well, thanks LAPTOPDUNCE
