I've been trying and trying to install Service Pack 1a from the link RichieUK provided on my post about popups destroying my life, but my computer will not progress past the 'checking your computer for needed updates' screen. I've done it several times without success, so is there any other way i can install the service pack? Another link that will take me directly to the installation? Or even saving the file to a USB on another computer and transferring it?

Hi stelabeph,
Have you checked out the Troubleshooting Service Pack 1a Download Issues?
You could also download it to a CD using another computer, and then run that file from the CD on your computer.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.

I think the link below will take you to the download and provides info you need for correctly installing the SP1a.
