    i just installed xp last night, and just finished downloading windows xp sp1
    express from the windows update site. It installed successfully. After
    checking a kb article, and checking in my registy, it is the sp1a.

    My only question, that I can't find the answer to, searching either here, or
    at the kb, is:

    Why isn't Windows XP SP1 listed in my Add/Remove Programs ??

    Because it becomes an integral part of your operating system, and should not
    be removed.

    The option is only in Add/Remove Programs if you chose to save the
    uninstall files.
    As long as it is working properly, they are not needed and it is
    usually best to delete them anyways.

    Oh, OK :) , I must have cliked "No, I don't want to save the uninstall
    files" ,
    I don't remember doing that
    <talk about blind cliking, eh >

    Jupiter, Can you tell me, if I "had" saved them, would they be located where
    I "think" I see the other Windows Update Uninstall Files, in subfolders,
    directly under my Windows Folder, highlighted in Blue ?

    Thank you for your time to reply

    Yes, as a hidden file like the rest, it would be in C:\Windows
    $NTServicePackUninstall$ is the name.
