months ago? I guess that was the beta as its only just shown up on my system as an auto update.

I think I did, and my network card doesn't work anymore. Thinking of going for a full system reboot.

off topic Benji but have you noticed BG have put up their click energy 5 prices in the last week! I'm starting with them next week :x

I am just in the process of switching to BG on their dual fuel click energy 5 and received a letter with the prices on a couple of weeks ago. Just checked and the tier 2 GAS seems to have gone up by about 30% and the electric by 10%. I never got notified of this rise. Should I have done?

Letter on 12th September

Gas 5.968 tier 1 2.504 tier 2

Current price 6.807 tier 1 3.432 tier 2

Letter on 12th September

Electric 22.685 tier 1 7.431 tier 2

Current price 19.164 tier 1 8.783 tier 2

No problems with it at my end.

Installed last week and it is a little faster.

Installed SP1 on two laptops about 3/4 weeks ago. No apparent problems during installation, can't say I notice any change in performance etc. But I did read yesterday someone else was having problem with update, so maybe MS server problems at the moment etc ?

EDIT : found it, melmorc was also having problems with SP1 > ]http//ww…ng/

Hadn't noticed there was any change, other than in the news a couple of months ago. Don't think that I got notification from BG but I can't remember the last time I got a bill so I might have done.

Oh yeah, and installed Service pack 1, seems a little slow booting up but that may just be the first time. Network card still not working!!

Vista SP1 did come out months ago. This web page says April.

I installed it when it first came out with no problems.

I think Microsoft now "drip feed" their service packs, to a few people at a time, rather than millions of people all installing it at the same time.

No problems at all with sp1 .... no problems with Vista either ! love it now :thumbsup:

Just had to do a system restore to before sp1 (installed an hour or two ago). Boogered up my internet completely :x

Installed Vista SP1 a few weeks ago and have had no problems at all, it failed to install the first time but was successful second time around.

Just tried again and internet still does not work after installing SP1. Will back it out again and never go near it again!

Do NOT install SP1 is my advice.

people who are having probs with SP1 might be suufering from the firewall issue. basically MS changed something in one of its later updates that screws up quite a few firewalls (zonealarm for on) in zone alarm if you have the problem you can drop the slider to medium and internet access comes back. the latest version of zonealarm etc have fixed the issue. so the answer would be to update your firewalls and drivers etc before installing sp1
