Default Vista SP2 Latest

The first beta release of SP2 is now avaiable for public download CLICK HERE.

You can either run the file from it's current location which is the web installer version, it looks at what components need which updates and applies only those, or download the stand alone installer (about 330Mb) for installation whenever you like.

2 Important things to note really THIS IS BETA SOFTWARE and as such comes with no support or warranties, from Microsoft or anyone else (that includes me )also when the final version is released and put through the update service, you must uninstall this Beta, before installing any other version.

If you are not confident about what you may encounter using beta software, the best advice would be to do nothing just yet. In any event make sure you set a restore point that can't be deleted, or better still make an image of your system drive, as I intend to, with something like Acronis True Image.

Also remember that you can use AUTOPATCHER service for free, and get all the appropriate updates.
