Question about Computers & Internet
When you start your Computer press down on the F8 key repeatedly. Your options will come up, select option last time computer worked properly. If this does not work, try option safe mode. Once it loads up go to system restore and select the time before you loaded the update. Go to start at the bottom left of task bar, control panel, user accounts, select all of the user accounts and remove the password option. Now try the system update only from the microsoft site.
Just copy and paste. Let me know if this works, if not will try something else.

Did you try performing a system restore to a point before installing SP2? If you had System Restore enabled, try performing a restore. Let me know if it works.

Tips for a great answer:
Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the delete or F2 key
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system
note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults
after windows has loaded
your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation
the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd
if your installation disk is only a service pack 1 or 2 you might need to create an xp sp3 disk
if you have a copy of windows service pack there is a program that allows you add service pack 3 to it so you have a copy of xp sp3
hope this helps
