Re: Sp1



t-4-2, the 1st application to disable is your anti-virus before installing SP1.
You are using Avast? Once install completed, and all(there are a few)
reboots finish, it will be restarted.

FWIW, I've never disabled my AV during service pack installations. In my case SP1 failed the first time because of an incompatible sound driver. But if we're going to advise him to disable his AV shouldn't we also suggest that he disconnect his computer from the internet during the install?
