Problem installing windows SP1

  Josquius 17:02 04 Nov 2005

I have a computer here with standard windows xp and no sp. I'm trying to put on SP1 (SP2 is incompatible with some of the software it uses) however am getting a error message with

'c:\windows\system32\drivers\atapi.sys' is open or in use by another app.

I've closed down everything non essential I can think of, restarted, etc... yet it always appears.
Any idea?
