After getting great advice and help on this forum after a massive computer problem I had to reinstall the OS. I am in the process of getting all the Microsoft updates installed as well. After waiting about an hour on Service Pack 2 installation I get a message "Access is denied, installation failed". I tried rebooting the computer and attempting again and got no further.

Does anyone have any ideas what may be preventing SP2 from installing? Or what I can possibly do to get around this issue?

Thanks again!

If that isn't successful Microsoft offers free support for issues related to security updates.

Microsoft Security Product Support Policy

Technical support is available from Microsoft Product Support
Services at 1-866-PC SAFETY (1-866-727-2338).

There is no charge for support calls associated with security updates.

International customers can get support from their local Microsoft
subsidiaries. Phone numbers for international support can be found
at: http://support.microsoft.com/common/international.aspx

You can also access tech support by going to the Windows Updates or Microsoft Updates page and clicking on get help and support on the left side. I believe you reach a higher level tech more quickly using that method but either will work.
