Error Code: 0x641 Update installation failed, Microsoft Fix it will not run, Installer corupt,

Windows XP SP3 is not updating.  Update downloads files but installation fails Error Code: 0x641.  Microsoft Fix it will not run due the problem.  My CD is a service pack 1 CD so when SCF /scannow runs it can not find the files to fix the problem.  I tried to download SP3 but when running, I get an error message saying the exe is not a valid win32 exe.

I'm running into many roadblocks trying to fix this problem.  Any solutions that do not include running Fix it since it will not run?
