    It's in C:\Windows
    I think it's called $NtUninstallServicePack$ or something like that. Just delete the folder. Now go to Add/Remove and click on SP1. You will see a message saying something like "The file was deleted. Would you like to remove the link", just say yes.
    That's it.

    So why not remove it through add/remove in the first place?

    If you do that SP1 will be removed.
