The stuff I work with (UPS battery monitoring) needs a PC. Site has a ~4 year old laptop with Vista Home........NEVER did an update. I had no Internet access, glad I had SP 1 & 2 on a USB key.
SP 1 took 1.5 hours to run through.
Still need to do SP 2.
As to sludge, I did a Mopar V-8 once that had at least 3lbs of sludge in the lifter gallery, no clue how much was in the pan or the rest of the engine. I had the owner (a sorta friend of mine) in there with a scraper to remove most of the sludge.
