    Re: sp 1 how do i know if it installed

    There are certain programs that will not run if you do not have SP1 (e.g. MSE). I highly recommend to install it. It should have shown up in your updates by now. If not, there is something blocking it. You may want to have a look at this ( Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 service packs are not available for installation through Windows Update )

    Why don't you just install it. Be patient, it takes 30 to 60 minutes depending on your hardware.
