windows service pack 2 installation - unique problem
please help me........!!!!
Respected techs and dear forum members,
I have installed a fresh copy of windows xp (without having sp 2 onto it) on my hard disk.
After that i tried to update windows through tools>windows update.
It took so so many hours to download service pack2.
Now after that i was prompted by the system to click so that update (service pack 2) be installed. I did click and it started installing.
The Installtion process of service pack 2 was going smoothly until the last screen (i believe it was last screen) displayed where it was written...
BUT the blue colour got stuck in the bar below the above message at almost in between.
Thereafter i patiently waited for hours at a strecth in anticipation that it will be completed but it got stuck.
So i was left with no choice but to restart the machine.
After that the system prompted a message saying that service pack 2 installation was not successful and hence to remove it from add/remove programs.
After uninstalling the incomplete service pack 2 i again repeated the whole process.
Again same story.
Plz help me....
My computer specifications:
2. RAM 1 GB
3. Intel Motherboard 865GBF
4. Windows xp professional
5. mcafee antivirus
plz plz help me early....
