I suppose it would be worth remind others that if you reinstall windows or use system restore to a point prior to installing sp1 then you also need to reinstall sp1 and any other updates.

I am updating a friends computer and am unaware that the computer had had windows reinstalled, I am downloading the SP1 patch on my own computer, If I install this will it resolve the problem?
