Vista SP1 does it ask before updating?

  grumpy-git 16:33 20 Apr 08

My laptop is set to update automatically. It tells me there is 1 important update 65mb - 427mb and gives an "install updates" button.

Does it not install itself because of the driver problems I've read about? All previous updates seem to have been "automatic".

It asks.

Thanks, so if it asks - does it mean it is safe to install it? Having read about drivers being incompatible on some machines I don't want to "force" it & get problems!

In theory ( actually it should be in practice!)
the SP1 update should NOT be offered to you if you have a driver issue.

Disable your security or anti virus during install.

Thanks anskyber, it installed without a problem.
