thank you for your help I tried the following method and everything loaded
ok, even the complete sp2 and the hp4215 printer...

Method 3: Rename the Catroot2 folder
Rename the Catroot2 folder (Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 only), and
then try to install the program again.

Note Skip this method if your operating system is Windows 2000.

To rename the Catroot2 folder, follow these steps: 1. Click Start, and then
click Run.
2. In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
3. At the command prompt, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after
each line:
net stop cryptsvc
ren %systemroot%\System32\Catroot2 oldcatroot2
net start cryptsvc
exit
Important Do not rename the Catroot folder. The Catroot2 folder is
automatically recreated by Windows, but the Catroot folder is not recreated
if it is renamed.

thanks again
dick johnson
