    Ensure that the location specified below is correct, or change it and insert 'Windows XP Service Pack 3 Source Files' in the drive you specify."

    Copy Files from:

    are you upgrading to SP3 from a disk or from a windows update?

    If from a disk, you have a file missing, corrupt, or damaged.
    Run CHKDSK C: from the command prompt to check your disk for corruption also.
