Windows Vista Service Pack 1 Five Language Standalone
Full user review
"I was starting to think I was the only one,"
It has been released full of bugs and with system component damaging possibilities. No pros at all. made no positive differences and destroyed my system three times. Yeah right, I'm hard headed!
I tried it 2 times on new Vista Home Premium installs. The first as a so called important update, 2nd as a download from Microsoft and manual install. Both times it corrupted my system restore component to an unrecoverable disaster. No matter how I tried, it was trashed beyond recovery.
After reading pre-release notes, reviews and several blogs I only found out "it's not compatible with some hardware configurations". Hours on the phone with Dell and Microsoft brought no answers or remedies.
I reformatted again and changed my update settings to not allow this BS to install again and it's running just fine without the SP. And guess what? Microsoft is fully aware of it's deadly potential and I'm thinking, it's no longer offered to owners of these Dell computers as an "important update'. I was so angry, I was fuming. Microsoft knows better and they don't care so they can KMA!
