Ok. do this.... Stop the HTTP/WWW first then stop SMTP usually/sometimes the smtp service take for ever to stop.
instead of letting IIS stop all related services try one at a time....I bilieve the Exchange management is also stop.

Reboot the machine. Then try and install the service pack immediately.
