    Question cannot uninstall W7 Sp1

    I am trying to reinstall W7 per Fred's recent article. However, when I go to the updates page, and click on the "Service Pack for Microsoft Windows (KB 976932), the uninstall option disappears. I have looked elsewhere for an answer. One included using the command prompt, and typing in a string. That only resulted in a message that SP1 could not be uninstalled. Am i at a dead end, here? Help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Download an official Windows 7 with SP1 ISO, burn it to disk and use it for the repair install. You can get it here:

    Sherm,
    Hello ....You have me confused (as usual ) You say that your re-installing "7".. The updates page, shows what updates are available... Unless your talking about the Installed Updates Page ...If your on Windows Update ...you can't un-install whats not installed.. Sorry.... Help Regards Fred

    thanks...

    thanks for the lead to the iso....I have yet to run it, however because of a new problem. Doing some checks for my original problem which led me to believe I should do a reinstall of W7 using the Langa method, I discovered that i may actually have a memory hardware issue. So, I ran the W7 memory diagnostic tool....but, it continues to loop...even when i shut off power, and try to reboot into Windows.

    So, now I am thinking that i will pull out my memory sticks, blow the sockets clean and reinstall them to see if that helps. If that does not help, I may simply buy new sticks....I am also thinking that before that I will recheck bios settings...

    anyway, it's a mess...and i really should listen to my wife who continues to tell me that tweaking leads only to trouble....:-)
