    I've had a search but not seen an answer to this one, so apologies if it's already been discussed.

    When I installed SP1 about a month ago I took the option of being able to uninstall it, just in case. Having now decided that I'm happy with it, is there a particular way of removing all the $Ntservicepackuninstall files (and are there any others elsewhere ?) Or is it just a matter of deleting those files from the windows directory.

    After you remove the $Ntservicepackuninstall folder you can go into Add/Remove and click on SP1. You will then get a message saying something like "can't find SP1 would you like to remove this entry from the Add/Remove list". Just say yes and it will be gone.
