a mag with xp service pack 1 on cover disk?

  pookie 11:56 12 Aug 2003


Do you know of any mags at moment that have service pack 1 for xp on cover disks. I can't find one anywhere and my modem is playing up so I can't get on internet to download it - I'm using a different machine to type this.

Many thanks

thanks jester2k II for reply - i really wanted to format and reinstall xp tonight as pc has a few problems. i've read past posts on those problems and clean reinstall was the solution.

thanks for replies - internet cafe it is. how do you download it to disk? when i did it last time to xp i thought that microsoft update site had to search your system to see what updates were needed and then it automatically downloaded/installed/configured it. i don't recall seeing an option to save it to disk.

PCPRO had it on. Sometime; way back when.

thanks for replies - a neighbour, who i wouldn't of associated as even having a pc, had it on disk. That's not meant to be ageist/sexist or any ist but was just my impression.

thanks again
