Madboy. When the site asks where i want to save sp1, I don't know where on the system to save it in. The initial option in the dialog box it to the desk top. But don't think its the right place for it.

You can save it wherever you like. Once the file has finished downloading you just double click on it and it will run and install itself automatically.

madboy is thinking if you go to windows update and download it from there, I take it what you're actually doing is going to the XP website and downloading SP1 from there.

Note- once you have downloaded it and installed (run) it, you can delete the full downloaded file from the desktop.
