XP SP1 install problem

when I try to install XP SP1, the files extract ok, then it brings up the first step of the wizard.
this window then closes itself and a moment later it brings up this error (attached) "Service Pack 1 Setup Canceled"

I'm wondering what is the cause of this? could it be a service I tweaked or something?

please see attached error screeny.
thanks.

Is antivirus running?
Are any applications running in the background except standard wiindows services, etc?
If so, shut them down.

Yeah, try and enable the services that you toyed with, wouldn't hurt, although I doubt thats causing it.

Also, is your XP legit? If its cracked or warez, that will do it too.

Good luck.

In many of the cases this error appears the reason is you sometimes used XP-Antispy and disabled two dll files needed. If so you need to start XP-Antispy again and reset the settings or

Start>Run and type in the run box the following
regsvr32.exe licdll.dll OK
regsvr32.exe regwizc.dll OK

If this is not your case there are several threads in this forum about the problem - must however confess that at least two didn't find a solution.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
