After about 10 hours I have managed to download Service Pack 1 using my 56k modem. It appears to have installed OK and shows:- Build 2600 - XPSP1 020828-1920 (Service Pack 1) on my desktop. Can anyone please confirm for me that this is the final version? Also any advice, if needed, on set up?

I have downloaded it to but I haven't got a water mark on my desktop. If i go to Explorer\Help\About Windows it shows me the following : Build 2600.xpsp1.020828-1920: Service Pak1. So I guess that your version is the final one, but i don't know ehat it's showing you on your desktop.

It should be right. To confirm the version you can go to: C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386 ,rightclick a file like explorer.exe, choose properties, go to the version tab - the version number should be: 6.0.2800.1106

Capricorn ... your version of SP1 is final.
As for the watermark, I wouldn't worry about it. I added it intentionally using TweakUI and it does show the same numbers as you have.

well one of the things could be ur cd-key is on M$ blacklist which means u can't upgrade to the Service Pack that seems to be the most logical based on what little info I've got to work with in ur case PUDBUDZ. I also might be careful on this subject since if my guess is right this ain't the place to talk bout that

Ok if u bought it u shouldn't be on the blacklist. Also it makes it a little easier to answer since u have a legal copy. Can u post the actual error message u get when u try to install the Service Pack or SP for short.

As far as the services go I can't think of any that the SP would need. Um as far as the error goes I've got no idea generally if u get an error it would provide some more info then what u r getting.

Did you use the program XP-Antispy? If so this may be the cause and you will have to reregister the files licdll.dll and regwizc.dll.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
