    Try downloading the Network install:

    There is a known issue with SP2 that if you have some sort of Spyware/Virus, the service pack will fail. Try running a spyware scan (using Ad-aware or Spybot Search and Destroy). after that, I would recommend running an online virus scan (I have better luck with the online type).

    You might to download the full admin installation package and perhaps use a download manager such as flashget or getright.

    The Network Installer also installs all updates previously avalible since SP1.
