    SP2 not installing (access denied) Error 80070005

    Using a Sony PCG-GRV550 Laptop with XP
    Have attempted to install SP2 from the net and from a file with no resolve/

    I find that some the instruction given in the knowledge base and
    troubleshooting are either not helpful or not able to do.
    Example:
    Suggestion 2: of "http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/troubleshoot/"
    says to 3. Right-click on the folder name and select Properties from the
    popup menu. 4. Click on the Security tab.
    I do not have this tab.

    The setupapi.log has this type of items.
    #E197 Writing "C:\WINDOWS\INF\msnmsn.inf" to "C:\WINDOWS\INF" is not an
    approved method of installing INF files. Use a 'CopyINF' entry instead.
    #E197 Writing "C:\WINDOWS\INF\msmsgs.inf" to "C:\WINDOWS\INF" is not an
    approved method of installing INF files. Use a 'CopyINF' entry instead.

    SP2 not installing (access denied) Error 80070005

    I'm seeing the same problems on a XP Home Ed and XP Pro.
    You need to go into the registry and change the
    permissions for the administrer to full control. The
    problem is if you have one you may have many with this
    problem. I'm hoping MS provides a registry check before
    installing the patch rather than 1-2 hours of processing
    and then terminating.

    Cannot install Service Pack 2

    Updates from the Windows Update Web site are not installed and an "Error
    0x80070005: Access is denied" error message is logged to the Windows Update.log
    file

    This error message may occur if you have insufficient permissions to the Windows
    Update registry keys. The WindowsUpdate.log file will also read errors
    0x80070005 and 0x80080005.
