Believe this problem to most likely be caused by virus or spyware, which caused ftp.exe to be recoded so that access is denied to even the administrator.
The problem with XP Home Edition is that there is no permission settings to be able to take ownership of files.
In order to fix for XP Home, you need to boot to the recovery console on the XP setup CD.
Then path to the system32 folder where ftp.exe located and rename ftp.exe to whatever you want. I just renamed to ftpexe.old . Then you can boot back into windows and install service pack 2 just fine.
Once SP2 installation is complete, you'll want to go into the i386 folder either on the XP setup CD or on your hard drive and copy ftp.exe to system32, because Service pack 2 does not replace the file.
