Windows SP Blocker Expires Soon

Quick heads up for the sysadmins out there. Microsoft’s Windows Service Pack Blocker Toolkit is going to expire for Vista SP1 and XP SP3 soon. Stop surfing the FS/FT forum and finish your compatibility testing or figure out another way to stop the service packs.

This code temporarily prevents the installation of a service pack through Windows Update, typically for one year after general availability of the service pack. The expiration date for the Service Pack Blocker Tool for Windows Vista SP1 isApril 28, 2009; for Windows XP SP3 the tool expires May 19, 2009.
