First i got options to restart normally or check for errors due to new software. Then it does a restores and sits for ages with black screen then blank widnows screen for another 10 mins. This happens every time i shut down or restart. Can anyone tell me what is going on. System restore does not go back before this. HELP!!!!

Try sfc /scannow and see if that cures it.

Maybe it has just downloaded SP1 and it is loading it at start up.
check your add remove programs to see if it is installed.

Think itsa problem with a bad load of SP1
remove it from ADD / Remove and reboot let windows redownload and reinstall.

see no sign of Windows 7 sp1 either in remove progs or on the computers properties so looks as if its not installed. Shd I go ahead and intall in I have Windows 7 Ultimate installed. thanks

No sign of it on mine either but it took me about 1.5 hours to download it.
So not sure what it comes under.
Tried add-remove and cannot see it in there either.

3 updates tonight for W/7.
Maybe one of those may sort you out.
