Use a system restore date from before you tried to download SP2.
I assume you updated the virus definitions on McAffee before you ran the scan.
Download, install, update and run any of the following you don't already have:Anti-malware freeware
(You can run as many of these as you wish. Generally there is no conflict between these and you should always run several)
Ad-Aware SE Personal is a free version and it can be downloaded from our Mirror Sites in the Download section at Lavasoft website. However, please note that while the free Ad-Aware SE naturally helps you remove all spyware, it does not provide real-time memory scanning; this capability comes with the paid versions. The freeware version is more than adaquate for your needs.http://www.lavasoft.com/
Spybot S&D: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html
Be sure to enable “Teatimer” which gives you realtime protection.
Microsoft Windows Defender http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/s...re/default.mspx
This also provides realtime protection.
Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool (Win XP and Win 2000):http://www.microsoft.com/security/malwareremove/default.mspx
AČ - Free from http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4281.html
. Run it, click Search for Updates, then click Scan.
Using Internet Explorer
run the following web based scans. (It is a good idea to put them in your "favorites" for future use as well)
These need Active X to work:
Kaspersky Anti-Virus Web Scannerhttp://www.kaspersky.com/service?chapter=161739400#betatest
Panda Activescan http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/co...n_principal.htm
Trend Micro antivirus and malware scan:http://housecall-beta.trendmicro.com/en/st...orp.asp?id=scan
Etrust Anti-virus web scannerhttp://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/virusinfo/scan.aspx
online trojan scans here - http://scan.sygatetech.com/pretrojanscan.html
Windows Security Trojanscanhttp://windowsecurity.com/trojanscan
See instructions for it here:http://www.windowsecurity.com/trojanscan/trojanscan.asp
Once your system is clean, return to the Windows Update site. Once you are at the download page disable McAffee and all other antispyware aps that are running. Click "download". (set your computer to download and install critical updates automatically at a time when you are sure your computer will be on - look at the right side of the download page)
Once SP2 downloads and installs, restore McAffee, etc.
Reboot, and return to Windows updates for additional updates (there are quite a few more).
