Also, dont do Windows Updates, unless you absolutely have to...
Why do you think schools dont update Windows?

You can download the SP2 file as a whole (150 MB or so) and then install it.

I don't like helping with this kind of stuff but MS will tell you the same thing so just turn automatic updates on and sp2 will download for you. It is a critical update and MS wants all PC's to have all the Critical Updates!!!

Best way to fix your problem is to buy Windows XP.
