I have just had a Tinker

Against my better judgment, but in line with my addiction to Tinker. I have just downloaded and installed Vista SP1, it was not offered to me as an update, and I downloaded the big version.
I seem to have no problems at all, although I did take full Acronis backup before stepping into the unknown.
I know that one is not offered the auto update if there is a driver problem, but all seems well. Is there any way of checking?

Just use your computer - the chances are very good indeed that you'll be just fine.

I did the same as you, all is well here.

It makes a hell of a difference when sharing files on a network, the speed increase is massive.

Thanks for all those answers.

Hello rawprawn, what’s tinker and why are you addicted to it?

Hi Chris, to "Tinker" is to play around with ones computer when it isn't really necessary. I don't know why I have become addicted except, that each time I make a balls of it I learn just a little bit more.
I have learned quite a bit over the years, but not enough to make me feel totally confident.
So I tinker!!
I look back to the days when you helped me out (and many others) many times in this forum. I hope that some times I may be able to help others.
I hope that you are well.

MS haven't pushed this out to Windows Update yet, which is why you haven't been offered it yet.

I have heard of a few problems with certain nVidia cards, but if yours works then it appears your card isn't affected.

I'm waiting for a couple more weeks before I do the update...

Hi sunny, yes I have and it is showing no problems. AOK as the Americans say.

That is what I call "Captain Sensible" I wish I was! but then a lot of the excitement would disappear.
PS> I think that some have had the update offered in MS Update, and it is a question of drivers that may not be compatible.
