    I've been trying to install Service Pack 2 for Windows XP but am having
    difficulties getting it to succeed. When I think it's going through without
    a hitch, I get a pop up or error message telling me "Make sure the
    Cryptographic service is running on this computer". My question is, what am
    I supposed to do to change or correct the settings?

    My platform is Windows XP Pro Service Pack 1...would like to update it to
    Service Pack 2 (need to in order to have my iPod work correctly). Currently
    trying to install via CD a friend had ordered from Microsoft to update her
    Service Pack.

    Would appreciate any help.

    you have a problem with the Cryptographic files on your system. IN
    PROBABILITY you are also not able to Visit any https:// websites you can try
    to refresh the Files by going to there in the download you will
    find secure site fix try running that also in services panel you will find
    cryptographic services try to see if it is started.if not start it
