It just feels so sick (yes, sick) that they cannot call it another name but Service Pack 1. (yes, as sick as that lump in my throat, if you know what I mean).
Here was what I did:
I went to install it, a good 5 minutes and the restart cleared my MSN history and all that I was doing before the restart. And I got this screen after all the dust settled themselves.
Click on the pictures to view their normal size
And this came up. Yes, my taskbar floats at the top of my screen so that it is easy for me to see what time it is (I don't have a watch and if you want to give me one, please do donate to me at my Support page. )
Then It (by "it" I mean Windows 7) tells me that the installation is successful:
Windows 7 Service Pack 1 for x64-based Systems (KB976932)
Installation date: 2/24/2011 11:07PM

Please do this update!
It will really take a good half an hour to complete the whole thing.
Also, do ignore some of the stupid stuff (like Silverlight or bitlocker updates) if you really do not need it. But do this first. This IS important!!!
