Installing Win 7 SP1
by TNorth2013 - 7/13/13 6:24 AM
I need to install Windows 7 SP1 on my computer - stopped getting all security updates and won't till that is installed. I have a few questions about safely installing it.
First - what should I do to prepare my system ahead of time? I have an HP desktop, OEM Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit, 1TB hard drive, i7 processor, Norton Internet Security - and I had been keeping up with all MS updates till April when the SP was needed.
Can I safely do this update through Windows Update - it is offered there, but I haven't allowed it yet till I am sure that I am ready to do it?
Besides backing up everything and running a complete virus scan - what else will make this go smoothly? And what should I watch out for in the process?
And - is the same SP1 used of Win 7 Starter which I have on my little netbook?
Thanks for the info and help!
