Go to Start> Run and type in cmd, click OK. When the black page with white letters opens type in sfc /scannow and press Enter. Please notice the space between sfc and the /.

After the process completes, close out the window and perform another Microsoft Windows Update.

ok on my svcpack.log

it says Service Pack 3 Setup encountered an error: Service Pack 3 Setup has been canceled because XP SP3 cannot be installed over RDP 6.0 MUI PACK (Update for Windows XP (KB925877)) . Before you can continue, you must Uninstall KB925877.

But how do you go about uninstalling the above?

Go to Start> Control Panel> Add or Remove Programs. At the top of the page make sure that the Show Updates box has a check in it. Scroll down the page till you find KB925877 and uninstall it.

I'm not getting this error code, but I do keep getting a Setup Error and a message that Access is Denied. I've tried turning off my firewall (ZoneAlarm), made sure Window's firewall wasn't on, disabled Spybot, disabled my antivirus Norton (and disconnected the dsl) and turned off any programs I could that start at start-up. This time I also did the sfc /scannow sequence, and did this from the Windows site: Step 1: Start the BITS service
Click Start, and then click Run.
Type services.msc in the Open box, and then click OK.
Right-click Background Intelligent Transfer Service, and then click Properties.
On the General tab in the Startup type box, click Automatic, and then click Apply.
In the Service status section of the properties dialog box, verify that the BITS service is started. If it is not started, click Start.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

I've tried not using the automatic download of the SP and have manually downloaded it. I continue to get the same error message each and every time. This is a home computer that I've been the primary user on for some time now.

Does anyone have any other suggestions on how get the installation to work? And if not, how about a suggestion to have it permanently removed from my bottom right corner annoying me that I need to upgrade to it?

Have you read this link: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/950717/ ?

The access denied error message is something I encountered when I installed RC1, but had no problem with the SP itself in final form. In my case, it was a video driver causing the problem. Take a look at the file on which the install halts and projects the error message.

That link helped because it got me going to another link that fixed it - thanks!

Here's the link:

Basically I had to do the option "advanced troubleshooting, Method One". After that everything performed perfectly!
