    Service Pack 1 phobia (Vista Home Premium)

    Hello and greetings from the great "Free State" of Tennessee,
    As of yet i have not yet installed service pack 1 (sp-1). I am somewhat reluctant to do so, based on my past exploits. (innumerable full system recoveries) etc. Question, is there any "downside" to not installing "SP-1" seeing how everything seems to be working just fine(for now) and have grown fond of the "search function" even though it occasionally gets me in trouble. Regards Plain Fred.

    DaveA,
    Hello and thank you for your response. Im still not convinced that i need this service pack (SP1) just yet. So i'll hold off for a while longer, and see how it "shakes out" Regards Plain Fred.
