It is a legitimate activated copy.  I have checked for updates and there are none outstanding.

Thanks in advance.

Right-click on Conputer > Properties. Should tell you if SP1 is installed after the name Windows Vista.

Also you can go to Start > type in at the Search: msinfo32 > Enter key on your keyboard. Here you can see if Windows Vista has SP1 applied.

Hello, in the search bar above Windows start button type "winver" press enter this should provide current SP level.
