Go into WH Smiths and pick up a copy of PC Pro etc they had SP1 on a Cover Dics

PCA do not have SP1 on there cover discs :-(

You can order a CD its completely free from click here takes about a month to arrive.

You can also download the invidual updates so the total SP1 downlaod will be reduced, as will the time. This is via windows update.

thanks will do that

DONT DO IT. I installed SP1 and what a mistake - caused so many conflicts, errors and problems that in the end all I could do was to format my hard drive - real pain (it even corrupted/deleted the system restore functions!). I would pick and choose what you install carefully.

If you have kept windows updated, your download may only be about 40meg as mine was.
