    Firstly, double check to make sure SP2 isn't installed yet: RIght click on your "my computer" icon and select properties. You will see which Service pack you are using along with various other details about your system.

    Next, download SP2 from here:


    This download is really for network admins to install on multiple computers on a network. However, you can also use it to install SP2 directly without the hassle of doing it via Windows update.

    Post back here if this installation fails.
