Windows Crash Errors?

I recently attempted to install service pack 1 for win XP pro, and while it was finishing up, I received several program errors and pop up winows wanting to send an error report. It read, "sp1 express encountered an error and needs to close" . I now get the error "WMI has encountered a problem and needs to close" . If I leave my computer on overnight, i'll sometimes have 20 of these error windows open. I tried searching google and microsoft, but to no real avail. I'm running:

Asus a7n8x deluxe, newest bios, version 1
xp 1800 --> 2000+
512 pc2400
msi ti4200
(2) WD Special Edition 80gb
52x32x52 Lite On
Antec True430

Any suggestions on how to fix, or even what this is and what it does?

  1. if you say loads of these errors appear all by themselves, sounds like some dodgy background program/service is trying to do something. Try looking in task manager and see what's running.

    also check there's nothing dodgy in Startup, by running <b>msconfig</b> from START->RUN, click the <b>startup</b> tab, and see what's there.

    Failing everything, use system restore and go back to a restore point prior to installation of SP1...

    $hit Happens. I just wish it would happen to someone else for a change.
