Cant install XP service pack 3

Specs: windowsxp, 3.2ghz
Hi i had a couple of attempts of installing windows service pack 3 after a fresh install of windows but it fails. I tried manually via the ms website and it is the same. I got the windows update agent but still i have this problem of not being able to get sp3. I disabled the resident sheild in avg free but still have this problem. I have superantispyware but by default they don't have a sheield thingy as i found out. Anything else i can do?

I ended up aquiring another machine with winxpsp3 on it already so i am going with that. This machine has better specs anyway except the ram which i transferred over....much happier :0)
