SP2 is an upgrade that will fail if it finds any malware on your computer.
Make sure it is squeaky clean and free from all viruses, spyware and adware. Review your anti-malware utilites and beef them up if necessary, then run them all until you are sure the computer is infection and spyware free.
Then try again.
