Service Pack Update? You didn't post the OS you are using? Are you downloading via Windows Updates? Have you done ALL the updates required before the Service Pack? Download the Service Pack, from the Microsoft website, and save, reinstall.

Windows Vista updates are distributed in service packs. Service packs
help keep Windows Vista current, and they can extend and update the

pack for Windows Vista. However, before you select the method that you
want to use, please make sure that the following conditions are true:
The service pack is not already installed on your computer.
You are logged on to your computer by using a user account that is a
computer administrator.
The computer on which you want to install the service pack is
connected to the Internet.
If you are not sure that all these conditions are true, please see the
"Before you try to download the latest Windows Vista service pack"
section. Otherwise, select the method that you want to use to download
and install the service pack.
Methods to download the latest service pack
Method 1: Turn on Automatic Updates (Recommended for most users)
Method 2: Check for updates on Windows Update (Same as Method 1 but
not automatic)
Method 3: Obtain the latest Windows Vista service pack from the
Microsoft Download Center (Good to use if the computer on which you
want to install the service pack is not connected to the Internet)
Important: Windows Update may not offer the latest Windows Vista
service pack to some users. This issue can occur for several reasons.

How we can change windows7 langueg for exmple fraench to english


Windows 7 language packs are available for computers that are running Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 7 Enterprise. The Windows 7 language packs can be installed only from the Optional Updates section in Windows Update. However, these language packs are not available on the Microsoft Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) server or through the Microsoft Download Center.

To download and install a Windows 7 language pack, follow these steps:
  1. Start Microsoft Update. To do this, click Start Collapse this imageExpand this image vistastartbutton.jpg, type Microsoft Update in the Start Search box, and then click Microsoft Update in the Programs list.
  2. Click the optional update links for the language packs.
  3. Under the Windows 7 Language Packs category, select the desired language pack.

    Note If you install many additional language packs, the disk space and system performance are affected. In particular, disk space and system performance are affected during servicing operations, such as Service Pack installations. Therefore, we recommend that you only add a language pack to your computer if you will use the language pack.
  4. Click OK, and then click Install updates to start the download and installation process.

    When you install a language pack, you can change the interface language of Windows 7 to the language that you select.
    Language packs also let multiple users who share a computer select distinct display languages. For example, one user can select to see the dialog boxes, menus, and other text in Japanese, whereas another user can select to see the same content in French.

    To change the display language, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, and then type Change display language in the Start Search box.
    2. Click Change display language.
    3. In the drop-down list that appears, select the language that you want, and then click OK.
    To uninstall a language pack, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, and then type Uninstall display language in the Start Search box.
    2. Click Install or uninstall display languages.
    3. Click Uninstall display languages.
    4. Select the language or the languages that you want to uninstall, and then click Next.
    5. Follow the rest of the steps to uninstall this language or these languages.
    After you install the desired language packs, you can hide unwanted language packs in Windows Update. To hide unwanted language packs in Windows Update, follow these steps:
    1. Click the Windows 7 Language Packs category in the Select the updates you want to install page to highlight all the language packs.
    2. Right-click the highlighted updates, and then select Hide update.

Download iTunes from Acer notebook to iPod nano 8gb


iPod offers three ways to transfer music from your computer. You can select one of the following update modes from the iPod Preferences menu in iTunes:
1. Automatically update all songs and playlists. This is the default mode, in which your entire music library, including playlists, is automatically synched to your iPod. If the music library on your computer exceeds the iPod storage capacity, iTunes will offer to choose a selection of songs to sync to iPod.
2. Automatically update selected playlists. With this option, iTunes automatically copies only the playlists you have selected to iPod when you connect it to the computer. This option can be selected by accessing the Music tab of the iPod settings.
3. Manually manage music. You can also choose to transfer music to iPod manually. This allows you to drag and drop individual songs and playlists from iTunes to iPod. You can find this option by accessing the Summmary tab of the iPod settings.
