    Well I believe you.
    Depending where you got those updates, someone could easily have added a fake one with them that changes you registry.

    Seems I have found the update that creates SP2 string: Windows6.1-KB674101.

    Install it and you will receive SP2 string even without rebooting!

    First off thavmym, according to the images you posted you are running 64 bit Windows 7 on your PC and in your VM you have 32 bit Windows installed so you are essentially comparing 2 different versions of windows as if they were supposed to be identical...

    Next, I have that same update installed ("Windows6.1-KB674101-x86[Update for Windows Services Stack].msu" is what it was called when I downloaded it; I have all the other updates you have posted installed as well) and I don't have "Service Pack 2" showing up in my Computer Properties windows...or anywhere for that matter.

    Have you used any windows tweaking tools or installed a "pre-activated" version of Windows or anything like that??? Something smells fishy here IMHO... :confused:

    EDIT: Do you have a good virus scanner? :p

    I suggest to install Windows 7 with updates in a virtual machine like Virtual PC (free) before to install in the real PC. ;)

    That is probably a wise suggestion... Since I purchased a pre-release copy of Win7 and plan on reinstalling on ~Oct. 22nd anyway, it does not really matter if I mess anything up so I just install most of the Zukona updates as they are released. I have noticed no side effects and if anything, my Windows seems to load up a little faster than before and some issues that I had with Explorer and my USB drive seem to have been resolved. (I had a problem when using a USB drive for ReadyBoost, sometimes when my PC would revert back from 'Sleep Mode' then ReadyBoost would no longer work properly...)

    found what exactly you changed:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows]


    CSDVersion

    000 = no SP
    100 = SP1
    200 = SP2
    300 = SP3
    etc


    now please stop bulls**ting, or if you didnt do it intentionaly, then stop runing random registry files...

    the error was due to installation of buggy software which edited registry

    What are the chances that thavmym downloaded and installed STALKER Call of Pripyat (Russian version) and used the "CSDVersion = 200 reg hack" to bypass the Starforce copy protection?
