RE: Service pack 3
We'll assume for this posting that you are enquiring about SP3 for Windows XP.

First, make sure that your anti virus software isn't locking the registry
and preventing the installer from modifying the same.

Error message when you try to install Windows XP Service Pack 3: "Access is
denied" or “Service Pack installation did not complete”

Tried using a search engine (Google, etc) to look for others with similar
issues?

I only ask because the usual solution to what you seem to have in the way of
an issue is posted several times a week (day maybe?) throughout the internet
in newsgroups like this one (probably mostly in this one and propogated all
over the world.) Perhaps - in the future - you could use something like
Google to speed up your solution-finding-missions. ;-) Just a suggestion.

In your case - I probably would have Googled for:

"Access Denied" "Windows XP" SP3

And probably would have found many hits - but one would likely have included
this advice:

I suggest trying Method 3 of this article:
