Hi guys,
I recently had some malware on my system, you can see my topic on that here:

Since then I have been unable to update my Windows. When I go to the update site it trys to install XP Service Pack 3 but it can never finish. Before I had the malware off my system it was giving me an error about registry keys, but now it just says that the update failed every time I try.

Perplexus who was helping me out with the malware had me run sfc /scannow I was prompted to insert my XP Professional disc 2 but all that came with my computer are recovery discs which I had to burn for myself when I got it. I tried inserting both discs but it said they were incorrect.

Any help you guys can provide to help me get my computer updating again is greatly appreciated
Thank You
