You're going to have to be more specific. You installed, then uninstalled SP2, and now a Sygate firewall will not install correctly? See Post #2, and if that doesn't help, try Post #3.

Keep your XP firewall ON in the meantime.

Follow the directions from MS.

msiexec.exe is the Windows Installer, and yours apparently is not working properly, which explains why the firewall will not install.
