I found this surfing.
I don't think I could stand updates like this.

Near-final Vista SP1 goes public

Microsoft has made Vista's Service Pack 1 near-final "release candidate" available for download to the general public, after initially choosing to restrict it to 15,000 beta testers when it debuted last week.

According to a blog by ZDNet.com's Mary Jo Foley, a Microsoft representative said the build contained a "number of bugs that testers encountered in previous prerelease versions of SP1."

The update is largely a collection of bug fixes and performance and compatibility improvements, but includes some minor new features.

SP1 RC Refresh, as the update is known, requires previous versions of SP1 to be uninstalled before it can be replaced with Refresh, which may entail waiting for the computer to "reboot multiple times," according to Microsoft.

After multiple rebooting, a period of an hour is required to allow the installer service to "clean up and complete the uninstall" to prevent possible installation errors.

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Well, I'm pretty sure that I couldn't! :roll:
I don't have a solution, but I do admire the problem.
