I am using Windows 7 Home Premium on one computer that doesn't have a very fast internet connection so I want to download the proper Service Pack 1 on a faster connection at work.

Which Windows 7 SP1 do I download from the Microsoft web site

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?familyId=c3202ce6-4056-4059-8a1b-3a9b77cdfdda&hash=aUL9BUNCmonq0DCmhekgyvtswWg9w6RAqYo6gboewEorm2dzu3hFiTjLWH%2b6o56aReZ%2brQ0VbZVDolp6RYRv5w%3d%3d

Looks like you won "by a nose". All three experts were basically right but you were first. The windows6.1-KB976932-X86.exe is what I will download but the one thing that kind of threw me was that the filename starts out with "windows6.1" which didn't seem right. Just for my information why is it called that?
