Boot to safe mode, Fn-F8 repeatedly at start. Remove the offending
device from Device Manager, Show hidden devices. Run sfc /scannow from
a command prompt. Have your install CD handy if there is no i386 folder
on the HD. This should take care of the immediate error problem and let
you install the device without hassle.

BTW, I think running sfc prior to installing SP2 is a good idea to
verify SP1 files in case a reversion is necessary.

Quaoar, Thanks for responding and your advice .

I have managed to install the device, but now the system crashes once the
device connects to the network. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Regards

I had a similar problem. Try disabling the Belkin Wireless LAN Monitor
program.

Did you follow the vendor's installation to the letter? You might try
again, disable your anti-virus, remove the device, and try a fresh
install. Check also device manager/Show hidden devices, and see if
there are other instances of the device installed and remove them and
reboot before trying another install.
