try booting in to safe mode keep pressing f8 on boot up if succesful uninstall sp2 in add and remove programs
Best to do a clean up and de-frag before installing sp2

Sp2 install usually has problems if spyware etc already on PC.

As suggested unistall in safemode, scan for spyware and viruses empty temp files and defrag before attempting to reinstall

You should Disable any Anti-Virus before running SP2
