Do a thorough disk check; click here

Download a fresh copy of SP2 (click here) or copy the entire XPSP2.exe file from the CD to your HD and install from there.

Disconnect from the 'net and disable your anti-virus software and/or try in safe mode.

Thanks for posting so quick brundle, have just tried all your suggestions, still the same error message.

You could try the sfc /scannow command from the run box it will check for any missing or corrupt files and attempt to replace them.
