    Been refusing to install for ever!

    SP1 has been nothing but trouble for me, never been able to install it, done all the suggested fixes from microsoft. Downloaded the standalone install exe and still no luck. It's been doing my head in, Is there any deffinate reasons that hsould make mem want to upgrade because my computer is far from disfunctional as it is but I would like it to be upgraded.

    Thanks for the info, but i'm not sure a complete re-install of windows would be good for me, backing up all my data would take ages as well as installing programs again. I would have to re-download alot of software and steam games.

    What exactly happens when you try to install SP1? Do you get error messages?
