    I get this error msg when I try to download sp2 for XP. Checked out suggested
    resolutions, also disabled my Norton Internet Security and Antivirus and
    still get same error msg. I cleared my proxy cache, & added the 3 update
    websites to Trusted Sites in IE. What else can I try?

    Thanks for link, but tried methods 1-6 with same results/error msg - finally
    rebooted, disabled Norton Internet security/anitvirus, same results/error
    msg. Only unusual issues: couldn't find winnt\system32\drivers\etc\, but did
    find Windows\system32\drivers\etc\ file, and my internet connection is set
    for auto detects settings, so didn't add windows update to proxy settings
    exceptions. I'm reading other discussions, but don't see anything I haven't
    tried so far.....

    thank you for your help ----
