    ah well I am on a network (home) but I run everything locally. Just the fact that I know there are problems that I don't even know about bother me. WHich is why I download EVERY windows update possible even if I'm not gonna use it.

    exactly I mean they are fixes right? Now bios updates on the other hand is a different story. I'm paronoid that it'll #&%$ up and trash my whole board. What are the chances of that?

    are you just downloading via the office update site or do you actually have an administrative install of SP1? its a 17-18 Meg file. download that and run it. get CD for when it asks you for the CD. and all should be good..

    Well I did download the administrative update file thinking it would work but no luck here. I then proceeded to download the regular sp1 file and it gave the error message no matther where I downloaded it from.

    Is there any workaround in XP for when the retry button does nothing and cancel backs you out of the install? Have you experienced this with other software installs? Does the safe mode boot work for them as well?

    well I haven't gotten many error messages like this for any install. When I do its usually file in use know what I mean? However I haven't gotten around to safe mode cause I've been busy rewireing my house for ethernet. Stupid PNA is finally gone. :D

    There is a known problem, if you have used the infamous XP Pro version available on the net, it is actually a pre-release version, and the SP will fail to install when it reads one of the files having a version number ending in .0, instead of the .1 of the official release
