You don't say what OS your using if it's WXP stater pack one is included in IE6.
If your updates are turned on it then will update as before there are quite a number of up dates for WXP now.

If you like you could try this SP1 has become SP1A
This is a 7 year old update.

Service Pack 1 (SP1) is no longer available for download.

To obtain Windows XP SP1a, visit the following Microsoft Web site click here

To install Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3), either Windows XP Service Pack 1a (SP1a) or Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) must already be installed.
If you have to install Windows XP Service Pack 1a or Windows XP Service Pack 2, go to the "Windows XP Service Pack 1a" section or the "Windows XP Service Pack 2" section in this article. click here

XP SP2 includes SP1 and SP1a plus refinements and additions.

  gidster 21:02 08 Sep 2009

hi bremner, is it safe to download it from there? i think i mean is it proper,from microsoft.

As its Vista your better off waiting for it to pop up on Windows Update, have recently done the same and it will be offered but only after certain other updates are installed. SP2 will come soon after.
