Hello Everyone! I'm new here, so I hope I am posting this in the right section. I have read heaps of threads here to see if my question has been asked before but I haven't been able to see if it has. Warning: I am an older guy who is not very software or computer terminology savvy. I built a PC with Win 7 ultimate 64 bit (without SP1) and I used Daz's WinLoader v 2.2 to install it on my computer. I followed all the of Daz's directions until I got to the part where I had to do an on-line activation / registration. I wasn't sure what to do at that point because I was a bit concerned that "Bill" might be doing on-line tracking to see who it was who was trying to activate. So because I was a bit paranoid about my on-line privacy and security, I never activated it on-line or registered it. I was also frightened that if I tried to activate on-line that it might black-list my computer and then I would be without a computer. Despite not activating it on-line, everything has been working flawlessly for me to do simple tasks. However, I ran into problems with some applications / programs / hardware that won't work without SP1, and I need to use these applications and hardware. So I was hoping someone could tell me how I go about obtaining and downloading SP1 onto my current system when my copy of Win 7 has never been activated on-line. Have I screwed the process up by not activating it on-line when I first installed it? Also, is there a SP2 available? Additional information: I never use IE - for security reasons. My motherboard is: (if it helps) is a Gigabyte GA P67A UD5 B3 I appreciate and thank you for any help you can offer. Cheers!
