Unable to install Windows XP SP3, Win Installer 3.1 or 4.5
After reinstalling XP SP2 from CD to resolve logon issues, Windows updated
all updates to Jan 09. But now I need to update the Windows Installer from
3.0 to 3.1 0r the latest 4.5 I receive this error "Error Code: 0x80070005 ".
I also tried to download and install SP3 with no luck. I shut off the Norton
Virus, then tried to install, no luck. I've run out of ideas.

What TaurArian said, plus...

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) and *only until* 14 Apr-09.
Go to http://support.microsoft.com/oas/def...spx?gprid=1173 | select
"Windows XP" then select "Windows XP Service Pack 3"
