Is it possible to download SP1 over the top of SP1a which I accidentally downloaded a while back? When I look in System My computer it says Service pack 1 is installed. But in add and Remove SP1a is there at bottom. My OS is XP Pro. Thanks for help.

Its no prob having both as sp1a is the later issue. I doubt you can remove one or the other..

If you have SP1, then there is no need for SP1a. The main difference with 1a is the removal of Java, so many prefer to stay with SP1. As to removing the SP1a, yes you can do so from control panel, Add/remove programs, but I have no idea as to the effect it will have on your present set-up.

If you decide to go ahead then make sure you back up all your files/personal data, you may end up having to re-install XP and SP1. j.

If you chose to archive the files during the installtion if SP1 then you can remove SP1. If not then your stuck with it.
