Really not sure if it will help but MS have released a 'Windows Installer Cleanup Utility'. Look for the file 'msicu.exe' : I can't remember exactly where I downloaded it. It is only about 250kb or so. It may help. Otherwise, why not try to extract the files first and then find and run 'update.exe'. This will at least tell you whether the big '.exe' file is corrupt (ie if you can't do a manual extraction). Or, the biggie, re-download the service pack !
