Hi 06LSMero


Try installing it from the standalone installer --- http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...BE-3B8E-4F30-8245-9E368D3CDB5A&displaylang=en --- unplug from networks, disable wireless, & shutdown your antivirus during the install - re-enable your protection immediately thereafter.

Some programs simply aren't compatible with SP2 and require updates to run under SP2.

When done installing SP2, you might as well install SP3, now that it's available. Your system has been vulnerable to attack without the updates - it's a good idea to keep up-to-date nowadays.

Best of luck
