I'm sorry but its too late, I decided to reinstall windows 7 and not use sp1 or the new updates. But not to worry I have great protection and I'm running normally again. Thank you for telling me about other people that run sp1 without any problems. When issues came up, I googled sp1 and found places where people had problems, below is from windows 7 forums where people say they have problems.
----- it crashed my laptop,and locked up the hard drive.i tried to reinstall winmo7 but its telling me i need drivers to run the set up.so i gotta go thru all that
--------------- Just installed SP1, and it has wrecked my internet page loading speed dramatically. I thought it was a malicious thing from microsoft because I use google chrome, but just tested this forum on IE and it is the same - s---l---o---w.
-------- I am running x64, set on 'tell me when there is something to download and install'.
Being the computer guppy, when it says important, I figure do it.
------- Fark me, I thought updates were supposed to improve things, not make them worse!
--------- I have been googling for the last couple of hours to see what I can do and the overwhelming results so far are related to crash on install, chrome crashing on startup and crashing on uninstall (total reinstall).
-------- Obviously the cpu or ram is now more stressed by whatever microsoft has stuffed around with.
Fark 'em, it was quite ok as it was. I'm too scared to uninstall it after reading all the crash stories.
I am not saying anyone is wrong just that people are having problems. On the other hand I've seen people say very good things about it. In any case I dont have any problems now, I have ultimate so I'm good. Love the gaming on this laptop so I just stick with this for now.
