Can not upgrade from SP1 to SP2
I have tried dozens of times to upgrade my Windows XP Pro from SP1 to SP2.
When it works, I find that MyComputer takes 4 or 5 minutes to display the
folders and files each time. I see it also has this problem when I open
Photoshop. The folder lists takes forever to display. I have tried the
download of the SP@ upgrade and also purchased the SP2 upgrade CD from
Windows. No luck.
Can anyone tell me what I can do do resolve this problem? I can not run the
Vista Advisor, or upgrade to Vista or install the more recent webcams without
SP2.
I think it has something to do with my Registry but don't know what.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks... Gary

Re: Can not upgrade from SP1 to SP2
As this is a Windows XP problem it should be asked in a Windows XP newsgroup
for best results.

Re: Can not upgrade from SP1 to SP2
Hi,

Run services.msc and disable automatic loading of WIA (Windows Image
Acquisition), this is a common cause of this XP problem. Further questions
should be posted to an XP support group for proper responses, as problems
and possible resolutions can often be very different than those in Vista.
