I need some help here. I am running a legit version of windows xp and when i tried to install the service pack 3, halfway through the installation a message popped up which said something about access denied, and then the installation got cancelled. It also said that since the update didn't finish windows may not function properly. Does anyone know what's wrong, what caused this problem and what I should do?

Is your installation of Windows pirated?

or just check to make sure the disk is not scratched.

My computer just told me that there was some new update available for my computer so i just proceeded to install it...

Restart your computer and run that without running anything else, likely some other program was using something the installer was trying to modifiy. and SP3 is not Vista with XP mode, it's mostly just security fixes.
