    Hi running XP Pro and trying to install XP [email protected] from Windows Update.

    I get half way through and receive following error message -

    Service PAck 2 setup could not backup registry key
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\MIcrosoft\Updates\Windows XP
    to file J:WINDOWS\$NtServicePAckUninstall$\reg00244. 5:Access is denied.

    Abort = Retry - Ignore

    If I bypass this it won't end up installing.

    Any ideas?
