Please be advised that installing SP-2 on a computer that is loaded and running for a long time can end up with lots of problems. My advice is not to do that. You will surely hear different opinions.

If, however, you wish to do that, use the link below and download Dial-A-Fix. Check Fix Windows Updates and click Go.
