Vista SP1 to debut Monday

A couple of months ago I applied the security patches to my lapttop running VISTA Ultimate and McAfee antivirus.  I was unable to access several pages that I had previously accessed; among them Yahoo Mail and my employers Web Access for GroupWise.

After much googling I uninstalled the latest security patch.  The problem did not clear.  I worked with McAfee support and finally uninstalled McAfee and then reinstalled McAfee followed by the security updates.  Everything was now ok. 

It happened again last week.  I installed the latest security updates.  Once again, I could not access yahoo mail.  *sigh*  I uninstalled the security patch - of course it didn't make a difference.  I uninstalled McAfee and I'm back in business. 

I am HOPING with the release of SP1 this will be the last time I have to do uninstall / reinstall.  In fact, I'm going to run without antivirus until I install SP1.  I'll use my XP machine for online work for the next week.
