I have 5.1.2 installed on XP-SP@ with no problems.  You might want to check
the security of the root drive, of Documents and Settings/{user} and of
Program Files.  It is possible to truly hose up XP by removing admin rights
from directories, etc.  Perhaps during the install of XP-SP2 something
unusual happened?

Are you using encryption on any of the directories involved?  Also, you
didn't change your password for either the user account you normally use or
for the Admin account did you?
