JSI Tip 2947. AntiVirus error when installing Windows 2000 SP1?

The Service Pack readme.txt states:

"Close all open applications and disable all virus scanners to make sure that the executable program can replace system files that are in use".

Depending on the AntiVirus product installed, if you do NOT disable it, you may receive various error messages and may not successfully install the Service Pack.
