    I think people can uninstall it? I thought they could at least, try re-running the installer and maybe it will see that its already installed and give you a uninstall option.

    Installed and testing the x64 version. Other than the watermark (which doesn't bother me) everything seems OK so far.

    I downloaded with no problem, but the file was corrupt!
    I just revisited the page and there's a warning that downloads seem to be dropping off! :behead:

    K, i will try try running the installer again to c if i can uninstall. But i discovered more problems with IE7 , IE7 crashes whenever i go to sites www.slickdeals.net or even guru3d.com. I have to include ****/forums to get in. I installed flash player again but it didn't solve the problem. My other friend who installed the sp1 has the same problem(also couldn't find uninstaller)

    i would wait for official, no need really to install this one cuz, well if you update win at the regular basis it all ready has all those updates installed, well most of them. And you won't get any issues that might be noticable when this sp is installed ( its beta peps that means in need more a lot more testing), lol well you all that installed it, are the experiment rabbits here :D.

    SP1 contains most (if not all) released hotfixes so it won't make a difference, the installer will just skip some files if you are running an up-to-date version of Vista.

    do you guys have the uninstall option or are you not able to uninstall it, I'm still unclear on what the truth of removing SP1 beta is?
