Vista Service Pack 1 - Available for Download

Everyday about 1pm I get a text message sent to me about what's new in Tech. So, today's "Tech Tip" was "A major package of updates and security fixes for Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system will be available for download." I thought it would be at least a couple of days.

I immediately went on Ustream to see if Andy was randomly broadcasting. I browsed around some other tech show to see if anybody might be talking about it.

I stumbled upon "The Tech Buzz" where they actually called Microsoft to find out if the Service Pack was available. They told them that it was available. They are doing an official install of Vista Service Pack 1. It took them about 45 minutes to install it.

If anybody is interested in downloading Vista Service Pack 1, here is the link:

If you install it, let us know how it goes and if you had any issues!

Good Luck!
