SP2 Will Not Install On My Computer

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.security_admin (More info?)

Windows XP SP2 will begin installation, but about midway through the install,
installation stops with the same error message. The error message is (access
denied). I have tried countless times to install this update using automatic
updates
as well as using the CD, all with negative results. I hope someone can help
me, at this point I'm about ready to update my operating system to XP
Professional, I
have XP Home Edition. Before installation I followed all the preperation
instructions
found on the Windows website.
