    Try this.
    Start
    Run
    sfc /scannow

    This will scan for and repair any damaged System files. Try installing SP3 after rebooting once sfc has finished running.

    Let us know if this works.

      I did run that but with no change. The strange thing is I didnt get a report as to what the command did or didnt do. But I do still have the same problem. Service pack 3 "Setup was cancelled" and IE still wont install.

          After a rootkit i'd be tempted to flatten and rebuild.

              Agree with wullieb1 and Ossian.
              Even if there is no legacy crap there might still be traces around to get the rootkit back.

                When you do a clean install, I would suggest you slipstream SP3 into XP. Then you don't have to install SP3 after the initial installation. nLite is the easiest method I have found to slipstream a service pack.

                  Hi,

                  This problem happen by a virus or if you have Xp sp3 and repair the windows with Xp sp2 CD. then you will not be able to install any update. i spent 2 months looking for a solution and i solved by re-activating the windows. after that it works like a charm and was able to install all the updates.

                  Just give it a try and let me know

                    This is what I did and it worked great.

                    Rename c:\windows\system32\spupdsvc.exe to c:\windows\system32\spupdsvc.old and try again.
