Media maker is already on there, so if you downloaded it, you may have uninstalled it

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, all the files in the folder will now be highlighted, right click any file, click delete, a box will appear asking if you want to delete all the files, confirm the delete then reboot

Open the CD ROM Drive used to install Windows, insert the XP CD but leave the drawer open. Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, then close the CD ROM Drive drawer, You will get a blue progress bar, after the bar goes, reboot. This will check for and replace missing or corrupt system files.

In add / remove, at the top there is a show updates box which needs to be ticked, SP2 is usually way down the list

Microsoft Update will offer most of the critical updates before it offers SP2, so you will not see it until you have installed those
