I have my dads old P15 Toshiba laptop that had xp 2002 media center on it, the hard drive had failed so I got a replacement and used restore disc to bring back to day one, but I can't get windows to update on it.

I open IE (its 6 by default) and it says update to IE8 but when i click to do that it says "The procedure entry point shreggetvaluew could not be located in the dynamic library shlwapi.dll".

I looked in system properties and it shows XP Media Center Edition 2002 Service Pack 1 so I tried to install xp service pack 2 but it keeps saying the file is corrupt after repeated times trying to re-download and reinstall it from the microsoft website.

Out of ideas for tonight so figured I would come ask - walk away come back later and see if I have any new suggestions on how to get this thing to start updating, it's slow and old but it was my dad's and he has recently passed so getting it going again is kinda more of a sentimental thing to pass down to my daughter.
