In another post it was pointed out to me that I do not have service pack 1 installed. For some reason it is not showing up in the windows update. Why would it not be showing up and do i need to update to it?

Hello -

Do you have Windows Updates turned on ?? This is the easy way.

Each month M/soft releases Updates and Security Patches for your system.

Go to Control Panel and make sure you have Updates Enabled -

 

Or go Start > Programs > and open Windows Updates, then install all Express or Important Updates offered.

 

Thank You -

i have been through the steps and there doesn't seem to be any reasons why it won't update, when i go try to install it from the downlad centre it asks me to choose the download that i want. There are several listed, which one do i select?

Have you installed all of the pending updates for your system? Please press the start button then right click on the computer button on the right menu, then clock properties, somewhere it will say either 32bit or 64 bit, If it is 32 bit, use this download: windows6.1-KB976932-X86.exe if it is 64 bit use this one: windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe

You can also manually download service pack one and install from microsoft if windows update doesnt find it. I had to do that with a vista machine, and everything worked great
