just a suggestion, do what Jg427 said, but you should really not install the beta stuff anyway wait for the final releas of the service pack. You would have gotten the error with the final anyway more than likely because in SP2 they are going to enable all security.

do what the first poster said, it MIGHT fix teh problem, although it didnt for me.

but just so you know, your probably not using the latest version of SP2, which is RC1, and they have fixed this problem in it...

you can probably find SP2 RC1 on kazaa or bittorrent or something but if all else fails just add me on msn messenger (rossco_2004@Hotmail.com) and I will send you the express setup which is only like 3mb, but during the setup it downloads the files for you so it adds up to be a lot more...
