"Access is Denied" message when installing XP SP2

After many months of trying to install sp2 and contacting Microsoft, all to no avail
I Found this at: http://blogs.blogosphere.ca/brock/archive/2004/09/19/3230.aspx
So, for a couple of weeks now I've been having trouble installing Windows XP Service Pack 2. I kept on getting registry errors during the install process, finally ending off with an “Access is Denied” message, thus, ending the installation. However, after a lot of searching, I found the following solution, which actually works, as compared to all of Microsoft's solutions.
(UPDATE -- July 3rd. This page has now had over 10,000 page views. Hope you're all still benefiting from this solution!)
Do the following:
1. Download and install subinacl from:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=e8ba3e56-d8fe-4a91-93cf-ed6985e3927b&displaylang=en
2. Create a file named
reset.cmd
in
C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools
folder.
3. Edit the reset.cmd file with the following content.

subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=system=f
subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=system=f
4. Enter into CMD prompt.
5. Enter the following commands one at a time and click Enter.
cd\
cd "C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools"
reset.cmd
6. Let the program do it's work, then run the SP2 installation.
