    When I try to download SP2, I get an error message 0x8007045D. What should I
    do?

  2. 8007045d = "ERROR_IO_DEVICE - The request could not be performed because of
    an I/O device error."

    Possibly your hard disk is going bad. Run a full chkdsk as follows:

    Open "My Computer".
    Right click drive C:, select "Properties".
    Click tab "Tools"
    Click "Check now"
    Check *both* check-boxes, and click Start.
    Follow instructions to restart Windows.

    Before Windows reloads, it will run a full chkdsk, which might take an hour
    or more. Take note of any significant errors reported: if it says it has
    replaced bad clusters in files, those files might now be corrupt.

    If there are very many errors, you shoud consider backing up your data
    files, reformatting, and installing a fresh version of Windows.
