Possible reason for SP1 not listed at Windows Update

    I posted earlier about not finding SP1 listed when I use Windows Update;
    I might now know why.

    I had gone through the eight reasons why SP1 might not be listed, and
    thought I had covered them all. I knew that the 'bad' Microsoft driver
    file ks.sys was listed in conjunction with a Logitech webcam, but, not
    having a Logitech webcam I figured that bit of info didn't apply to me.
    But yesterday when I was again trying to figure out why SP1 wasn't
    listed I did a system search, and sure enough ks.sys was there in the
    driver files. So maybe that is the whole reason.

    The article says that Microsoft will issue an update to correct the
    problem with ks.sys, and then SP1 will be available for those systems
    that presently have the 'bad' version.

    I've hesitated to simply delete ks.sys from my system, because I'm not
    sure what other programs or processes use it. Would deleting it likely
    cause other problems?
