I have read all the help pages, turned off firewall and symantec AV, added
trusted sites and still cannot download XP SP3.

Any ideas?

Re: Error 0x80072EFD not allowing windows update
You are not offered the option to install Windows XP Service Pack 3 when you
use the Windows Update Web site or Automatic Updates:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/955307

WinXP SP3 - Read all prerequisites for a successful installation
http://msmvps.com/blogs/harrywaldron...tallation.aspx

Free unlimited installation and compatibility support is available for
Windows XP, but only for Service Pack 3 (SP3), until 14 Apr-09. Chat and
e-mail support is available only in the United States and Canada. Go to
http://support.microsoft.com/oas/def...spx?gprid=1173 | select "Windows
XP" then select "Windows XP Service Pack 3"
