XP Service Pack 2 installation problem
Posted on 2007-11-26
TRYING TO INSTALL Windows XP Service Pack 2 I get the following error:
Service Pack 2 Setup Error...Service Pack 2 could not back up registry key HKLM\system\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSIServer to file C:\Windows\$NTServicePackUninstall$\reg01543. 5:Access Denied
The machine is a Sony Vaio w/Media Center Edition Service Pack 1
I have just finished removing quite a bit of malware...have run chkdsk /r and it repaired some bad sectors.
I have run Norton WinDoctor...and Registry Mechanic....they found some errors and repaired but still have this problem..
Thanks for any input.
