Try reapplying your service pack, or if this has happened recently use system restore to go back to a point where you were'nt affected by this problem.

Alternitavely you could use the in place install to repair your OS.

This sometimes happens.
If you cant slipstream then just Uninstall SP2. Reboot. Reinstall SP2.
