Check your firewall software to make sure it’s not blocking Windows Update.

Another user solved the error (even though he wasn’t using a proxy server)
by opening the command prompt and typing:-
proxycfg -d
net stop wuauserv
net start wuauserv

One advantage of the full download is that you can slipstream the sp2 patch
with your original WinXP CD.

Also SP2 CD can be ordered online.
