Sometimes Mathematica Installer encounters 
security/firewall/adminstrative rights problems.

Right click the setup.exe, choose properties/advanced/compatibility and 
give it a win2k environment. Analog if the same problem occurs with 
Mathematica.exe installed.

If this doesn't work try:

In Windows XP (home) start the computer and at boot press F8 and choose 
the secure boot option. Log in as Administrator and install Mathematica. 
This should work even with servicepack 2 and firewall activated.
