You can force Vista to update to SP1.

Open Windows Update.

Check for updates.

Choose "View Available updates"

SP1 Should appear...Then you can choose to install it. It is as yet not available via automatic updates, and there are a few issues.

Mine went fine on 2 machines at home, but had several problems with clients machines.

If you want to try, follow the instructions:

crosstrainer....thanks for that, will await a while to see what happens. The object of the post however, was to state [if that's the correct term] that SP1 was not appearing so as to install!

Lots of people are still waiting to be 'offered' SP1. Don't worry about it because a number of different things installed in or fixed to your 'box of dots' can upset Windows Update.

There is a 'fits all' SP1 download but it is prone to all sorts of problems.

From what I have read once SP1 is correctly installed you will probably notice little difference.

I still haven't been 'offered' SP1 and I have tried to use other methods but my advice is sit quiet and wait.

I am still waiting for it to appear as an update.
I don't want to install it until it is right for my computer.

Also, some machines with older BIOS chip's will Never be offered the update due to compatibility issues.
