This problem may occur if the eTrust antivirus program is running when you try to install Windows XP SP2. When the Setup program tries to open a .cab file, the eTrust antivirus program puts a file lock on the .cab file to scan the file for viruses. The Setup program, Update.exe, detects the file lock and logs the error.
To resolve this problem, contact Computer Associates for information about an update to the eTrust antivirus program. This problem was first corrected in the eTrust version that is dated April 10, 2004.
