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.

Mario, that did not work.  Sembee, I had thought we tried this, but in any event it worked perfectly, thanks very much.
