No icon network & no updates with errors

When I try it it alls disapires just and nothing happens?

(Windowx XP Pro 32-bit) (OEM Windows XP pro sp3 cd) computing personalized, I myself built about 6 years ago.

Was installing IE8 & all other updates 09/01/2011.

I've had Bitdefender total security 2010 & uninstalled upgrade to version 2011. While I had it I thought that I would do all the updates before I reinstalled it, which includded the IE8 & around 11 or 12 other updates. Day & IE8 updates has not and when I rebooted to try again I couldn't on the internet at all. I have noticed the icon in the network, (network connections icon) folder. I used my laptop I looked on microsofts site troubleshooting for the icon missing and all running ok except DCOM security check. Now I can get on internet but very limited and still no icon and no install or uninstall. He tells me the windows setup program is damaged or was not correct. my pc is very slow and buggy. I got a list of errors in the events I'll also post below. I just format and reload, but I have a lot of very important work here. I'm trying to fix it before I go buy another HARD drive and starting over.  Here is the KB894543 of KB825826 & help section # s I've tried so far. I also started on the cd of win and did a chkdsk /r and still did not help.   I also get this a lot: Win32: access denied...

System Restore work? If so, then use a created point restoration before the attempted update 09/01/2011.

If there are restore points, use the one created just before the restore point of Software Distribution 1/9.

If the system restore does not work or there is no restore point created before the preceding, since you have the XP CD, you can try a repair Installation.
