Any suggestions I tried to install the sp 2 on my desktop and I get this message "Access is denied" and it will not install the sp 2 pack.

Try installing from a account that has administrative permissions, or create a new account with admin rights and try it again...
You may need to rebuild your permissions with secedit
XP Pro:
Go to Start>Run>cmd press enter
the command is secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\repair\secsetup.inf /db secsetup.sdb /verbose
If XP Home, you need to get a copy of secedit.exe and place it in %windir%/system32 and then run the command, i have the secedit.exe so if you need it email me, and then retry your install of SP2

You may also want to scan for adware/spyware and viruses, with up-to-date software
(ad-aware, spybot, and MS Antispyware for adware/spyware) and i recommend CA eTrust AV for viruses
post back with more info! and more solutions...

If the excellent advice from josh doesn't take you far enough, you may have serious spyware issues going on.

Download HijackThis from http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/
Follow the instructions on this page and post the log this program generates at one of the links under "Where to find help".
