    problems trying to install XP service pack 3 KB936929

    Morning
    I get an error repsonse can't install access is denied and have to undo
    changes that have been made. This happens at the point when the download is
    trying to update the registry keys. I have automatic updates turned on and
    now when I go the the wedsite to check for other updates I get the response
    saying unable to do so. The icon is still in the tray saying this update svc
    pack 3 needs to be installed.
