<<i downloaded the necessary files for my computer except for 4 files.>>
To reinstall Windows, you need an install disk for Windows. Do you have one?
<< i recently had to do a windows reinstall after having too many problems.>>
Malware problems? A clean install of Windows?
Reinstalling windows on top of itself (a repair install) is not the answer to many situations....some of those require a clean install of Windows.
What Windows version is installed?

If someone else...performed a clean install of XP Pro...what does all that verbiage about "downloaded the necessary files for my computer except for 4 files. i tried to download service pack 3," mean?
A clean install with a XP Pro install disk...should only have been augmented by installation of drivers for that system. Once the proper drivers were installed, installation of any pertinent XP Pro updates should have been accomplished at Windows Update.
Have you been to the Windows Update site?
Were you able to obtain updates?
If not, what was the exact message received?

OK...correct me if I misinterpret any of this.
You/he downloaded/installed an illegal copy XP Pro, SP2. Do you realize that every time that someone downloads/installs such...that he/she has no idea whether that package contains malware of every sort, making the system vulnerable to any number of scenarios which I don't recommend for anyone?
<<...and when i try to run it it says that it's not a valid win32 application.>>
BTW...I noticed you completely sidestepped my question about Windows Update...the network install package for SP3 doesn't originate there. The message that I get is that your system won't pass WGA and you cannot get updates via WUS.
The message that you quote above happens fairly often...but it normally occurs when an installed program is attempting to run, after it has been installed. SP3 doesn't work that way, so I have no clue why you would get said message during an install effort.
