I have had my PC for about 5 years it is custom built and recently had a nasty hijack / malware / trojan infestation. I reformatted and installed updated drivers and SP1. When I went to install SP2 I got errors saying it could not be installed.
Previous to SP1 I had installed Chrome / Spotify and Adobe software.
Did you install Windows, too, after "reformatting"?
If you plan to install SP2, do it immediately after installing SP1 and not after you have installed other things that could potentially interfere with the process. Some drivers may change, too, after installing service packs.
Whatever happened, your setup is corrupted in some way. You'd be better off starting over than trying to patch it and leaving something unfixed.
