Works fine on my system. Start a new kernel, then evaluates the 
following expressions:

In[1]:=
$Version

Out[1]=
5.2 for Microsoft Windows (June 20, 2005)

In[2]:=
Remove[SphericalPlot3D]; (* Just in case you have some conflicting 
definition automatically loaded during the initialization *)
Needs["Graphics`ParametricPlot3D`"];
SphericalPlot3D[2, {theta, 0, Pi}, {phi, -Pi, Pi}];
