Do a system restore to a time when this did not happen.I have installed XPSP2 on 3 computers without a prob :-)

do as ICF says and when all working ok - do a spybot and adware run and then install sp2.

Have a look in Event Viewer: Control Panel, Admin. Tools, Event Viewer, System.

Look for Errors, highlight, Action, Properties. You also have the option to send to Microsoft for additional information.

tried that, got loads of errors but have not got a clue what to do next

Highlight an Error by right click, select Action, Properties. That will tell you what the error is, and maybe what caused it.
