  • Use another computer, download the Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Service Pack 3 installers from the following addressess

    http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=28 (Service Pack 2)
    http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=24 (Service Pack 3)

    and install them manually; reboot your systema after completing each Service Pack installation.
    Run Windows Update at the end.
