Do a good computer cleaning before trying to download SP2.
Clean your browser cache. Go to Tools>Internet Options>General Tab>Delete the Cookies, Temp Files (in the window check to delete Offline content) and Clear History.
Go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup. Run it. Check every box and click OK.
Close all running programs, including the Browser. Go to Start>Run>type: %temp%>OK. In this window go to the menu to EDIT>Select All> now delete all the Temp Windows files (not the same as temp files in Internet Option).
Clean your Prefetch files: Start>Run>type: prefetch> do as above to delete.
Follow the path for Disk Cleanup and select the Disk Defragment. Defrag the HD even if it says it does not need it.
