    Try installing Windows XP Service Pack 1a this way:
    ***PRINT THIS LIST***
    Do not use Express Installation.
    You can order Service Pack 1a CD from:
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/downloads/servicepacks/sp1/ordercd.asp
    http://www.microsoft.com/uk/windowsxp/servicepacks/sp1.asp
    Or:
    The CD is also distributed with some magazines.
    Or:
    Download the Network Installation from here: (be sure to select the
    correct language)
    Also select "Windows XP Professional and Home Edition" Do NOT select
    64 bit.

    DSL takes about 20 minutes, if you do not have high speed access, get
    a friend to D/L SP1a for you.
    Then burn it to a CD and keep for the future.
    It is best to resolve current issues BEFORE installing SP1a.
    First check to make sure you have all updated drivers.
    You should have at least 2gb free space (Less than half that is needed
    for SP1a, but if you are that close, you need to start looking for
    ways to free space or add another hard drive.)
    Check with computer manufacturer to insure compatibility with SP1,
    there are a few models where the company has said wait while the
    manufacturer implements a fix.
    Compaq and HP are 2 that I know of.
    If you have HP or Compaq computer contact them before installing SP1a:
    http://www.hp.com/cposupport/personal_computing/support_doc/bph07866.html#P1_65
    There may still be issues with the HP/Compaq fix, so you may want to
    wait
    If possible run Ad-Aware and delete spyware:
    http://www.webattack.com/get/adaware.shtml
    If you ever installed XP-Antispy, it disables a dll SP1a needs, so
    just in case, Start - Run and run
    regsvr32 licdll.dll
    regsvr32 regwiz.dll
    Run chkdsk to check file system.
    Perform Disk Cleanup (all boxes checked except Compress old files)
    Perform Disk Defragmentation.
    Ensure correct date and time.
    Disconnect all peripherals (camera, scanner, printer etc)
    When you are ready:
    Create a Restore Point in System Restore
    Go to MSCONFIG, make note of what is checked in Start-Up tab then
    uncheck all in Start-up tab.
    Reboot the computer
    Login as an Administrator, disable ALL unnecessary applications
    including antivirus.
    Do NOT touch any keys during the process unless necessary.
    Install SP1a by double clicking on it, follow the prompts.
    After SP1a install is completed, reboot, defrag.
    Go back to MSCONFIG and recheck what you unchecked.

    Then:
    Be sure to check for other Critical Updates when finished.
