As my daughters computer was giving more and more problems we decided to do a clean reinstall of XP. It runs Xp 64bit professional. After it had finished ran Drivers disc then tried to install service pack 2 from net got to near end of download and stuck, Printer not working went to HP site for drivers down load ran to near the end and stuck. tried to install Adobe reader ran to near end stuck and reported programe conflict. It uses Windows firewall and AVG antivirus. Anyone any Ideas please.

If no joy, I'd suggest downloading SP2 from MS site, then slipstream it to your XP disk. I've done this with sticky 32 bit reinstalls.

P.S. - if you've not done this before, there's a tutorial (for XP with SP3) here. The principle is the same.

Can you not do it from another computer and download to a CD or whatever for transfer.

I'm a spammer apparently. Try running SFC, the link is to google to help how to run it. First result is good, https://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0&hl=en#hl=en&complete=0&site=webhp&source=hp&q=http:%2F%2Fpcsupport.about.com%2Fod%2Ftoolsofthetrade%2Fht%2Fsfc-scannow.htm&btnK=Google+Search&oq=http:%2F%2Fpcsupport.about.com%2Fod%2Ftoolsofthetrade%2Fht%2Fsfc-scannow.htm&gsl=hp.12...2096.2096.0.2914.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0..0.0.les%3B..0.0...1c.k6o-eQ6BnRA&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.rgc.r_pw.&fp=a02140e1bd75ff63&biw=1544&bih=872

Are you (trying to) download and save the files to a folder on your pc to install later?

Or are you trying to run the installation files from the internet website?
