      are you on a domain ??
      Cause GPO can prevent this if you're using wsus..

      not being an administrator can also prevent it..

            Could be caused if you're not using a legal version of XP. Is it a legal copy?

            Also, please do not bump a post so soon. Gotta give people time to respond.

                SP2? Why not download ind install SP3.
                1 1 was a racehorse.
                2 2 was 1 2.
                1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
                2 2 1 1 2

                  Is it Windows XP Home edition or Professional edition?
                  What is the current SP-level? Have you tried Windows update site?
                  Have you checked the eventslogs, and the instalation log file?


                  try installing the SP like this,
                  Download the full "Network Installation Package" of this Service Pack (!).
                  After download is completed, disconnect the computer from the internet.
                  - Un-install virusscanners and all anti spyware software from the computer
                  -stay offline after reboot-

                  Open GPEdit management console
                  Under Computer Configuration, click Windows Settings.
                  Click Security Settings, click Local Policies, and then click User Rights Assignments.

                  please, check the following user rights, required by Update.exe:
                  - Back up files and directories
                  - Debug programs
                  - Manage auditing and security log
                  - Restore files and directories
                  - Shutdown the system
                  - Take ownership of files or other objects
                  - Debug programs
                  Assign the policies by right-clicking the policy, click Properties, and then add the group Administrators (or, the name of your useraccount if you suspect the administrators group could have been renamed).

                  reboot the computer again
                  Then start installing service pack using the network installation package.
                  If still failes, please post the content of the installation log-file.

                  Don't forget to reinstall your antivirus software and updating it, first thing you do when connecting to the internet.


                  If you have the Windows XP setup disks you could also try this,
                  to workaround the above update user rights issues: Slipstream the service packfiles into a new setup disk. And do a reapair install from the new installation cd.
