Premium, I still have not received the SP1 I do have McAfee. After reading
previous posts do you think this is a problem. Help!!!!

If you are not having any problems don't worry about it because it may cause
problems.

When SP1 is not offered via Windows Update there is usually a reason why.

Uninstall McAfee before installing SP1.

McAfee should be either disabled or uninstalled before attempting to install
SP1. It and Norton have never adequately addressed the Vista architecture
and eventually become problems.

Then I wonder how come my friends are getting it through automatic update,
maybe because their computer is newer then mine.

Microsoft is "throttling" the SP1 update. Not everyone
is going to be offered SP1 at the same time.

I have had it for two weeks (I think), and I don't even RUN Vista yet.

I downloaded it for a friend who lives in the boonies and only has
dialup. Sent it to him on a CD on 4/14.

In my previous post, which obviously you did not
read thoroughly, I did provide a link to the standalone version
of SP1.

Sorry, I'm the clueless dick. Anyone with Internet access can get the full Vista
SP1 file ANYTIME they want to.

I was commenting on the misuse of the term throttling by the dope
Carey. Nice to see moronic MVP's kiss each other's ass no matter what.

Nice try but your redemption is limited by your inability to
offer intelligent, mature, and civilized conversation and apologies.

Is there a bigger buffoon than Adam Al"dim" !! I do not think so !! Why
would you download and install a stand alone when there is clearly a reason
why it is not being offered ... My God you frickin Doofus I would expect
somebody who supposedly has computer experience to understand this.. Hey
Adam !! Get a frickin clue moron and try giving real advice instead of a
stupid reply like.. "Hey go get the full file and really screw up your
computer !!.." My advice to the op would be research as to why they are
not being offered SP1... I was not offered SP1 either but after a little
research I found the reason, cured it, and then was offered sp1 !!.. I
downloaded and installed it and now Vista even better than before !!
.....Vista is FAR from perfect but it is rock solid and fast on this
machine...

Mcafee isn't the problem. You can go to Microsoft's web site and download
the SP1 update independently and apply it. I suggest updating all your
drivers before you do. It is often the reason you didn't get offered SP1.

I know Nortons is crap. It has been known since 2005 but I have Mcafee on my
32 bit Business Edition Vista (doesn't work on 64 bit ultimate) and had it
installed pre SP1 and it remains installed after SP1 with no problems
occurring.

More often then not downloading the standalone will cause problems !!! As
for McAfee, always has been bloated crap and always will be !!!

If you want to use a junk anti-virus software then use McAfee. I have
known it to be junk since 2002. I found this out when it would not
let me install the updates for it. The only way it would was to
uninstall the entire program and reinstall it and then the updates
would install. I had to do this everytime I needed to install an
update. I have not had issues with Norton Anti-Virus, Norton 360
v1.0, or Norton v.2.0 and it works better with Microsoft.
