    a.. There are roughly 2500 fixes in SP1. This is an average size for a
    service pack, but the issues fixed are very important to our customers.
    a.. Almost 20% of those fixes are direct result of customer requests.
    a.. Over 500 of those fixes focused on security.

    None of my 27 issues have been fixed, I wonder who their customers really

  2. SP1 for what? Certainly not XP Pro x64 since it released at service pack
    level one in the first place (2005). Do you mean SP2 or are you referring
    to another 64-bit Windows OS entirely?

    Ditto. Now to address the OP.

    Clayton said:
    Why would you expect a service pack to fix anything? That's NOT WHAT
    SERVICE PACKS DO, DAMMIT! Sorry for shouting but any newbie *should*
    know that SPs are rollups of previously issued patches, fixes, etc. If
    your machine is properly updated almost everything in the service pack
    will *already* be installed.

    And any newbie *should* know that if you have 27 issues, you needed to
    fix each and every one of them BEFORE installing the service pack.

    So let's start by, first, removing the service pack and, second,
    addressing each issue here.

    Your first issue is: ????

    Welcome back Colin :)

    Clayton is referring to SP1 for Vista. The RC has just gone public.

    Then what do rollups do? every update is a fix being either individual or
    integrated into a services pack, there are many fixes in this SP that has
    not been released on Windows Update

    Please don't make me look silly, I have been around Windows since 3.1

    You were NOT "only passing on the news", you were whining that SP1
    didn't magically fix your problems.

    Quoting you: "None of my 27 issues have been fixed"

    If you want fixes for your problems, ask.

    If you want to whine, go away and stop bothering folks here who are
    trying to help those people who do ask for fixes, OK?

  16. Hi, Dennis. I thought I would ease back into things a bit and see how I
    hold up. Thanks for the greeting.

    I like your terminology "Progressing nicely", hopefully in the near
    future I can borrow it. I was in remission from December, 2006 until
    September, 2007. I was at the point where I was starting to get some energy
    back but being back in chemo-therapy eliminates most energy and is harder on
    the system the second time. Since I have my voice back I'm working 24 hours
    a week and having chemo-therapy, I would rather be back working 40 hours
    without chemo-therapy. Maybe next year but I won't set a goal because every
    time I set a goal it goes the other direction. The last goal that I set was
    being back to work full time October 1, 2007, instead I started chemo in
    September, 2007. Currently my key terminology is "It' better than the
    alternative". Have a great day.
