Oh dear - have I put my message in a gobbleydook fashion? I knew what I meant when I wrote it - sorry folks :-( Perhaps other people are not having the same issue.
I still have 2) and 3) showing as optional Updates still to be dealt with on my Vista Update page and I have not been offered SP1 yet through Automatic Update. These 2 drivers are not on the list of problem ones on the Microsoft site (but the Sound one was and has been dealt with).
Actually, when postie came today he brought an SP1 DVD that I had ordered a little while ago through a computer magazine offer.
My son is urging me to install it, but I was wondering if the fact that I have 2 optional driver Updates showing as waiting to be dealt with will be problematical.
Sorry to be a pest.
