I am running into errors installing sp2. Every time it is a different error. The first error i got was a control ID not found. How to resolve this?

Welcome to BC! :thumbsup:

Make SURE your computer is clean of all malicious software first! SP2 won't install correctly in an infected machine.

Also, in my experience, SP2 installs much better from a disk than it does from a download. You can order a disk HERE. This, of course, would especially be the preferred course of action for someone with a slow internet connection as it is a huge download.

I zero out the whole hard disk using the western digital utility before trying to install. The only driver i have installed in addition to the XP software is my wireless networking driver. The machine has no other software besides that.
I assume it is a clean hard disk.

Appreciate your help.
