When SP3 first came out, I had Automatic Updates Turn On.It download SP3 and install.I keep computer on all the time.When I got home the computer was in a scandisk mode loop and stating the volume was dirty.Could not get into safe mode.Had to reformat drive.
After that I always had Automatic Updates off.Did update manually after that using custom option.I read at Microsoft that when installing SP3 you need to disable your anti-virus.Hello !!!
I just installed SP3 and every thing looks good so far.I did am image copy using Acronis 11 to my external drive, download SP3 from Microsft and burn to disk, turn off anti-virus/spyware in ZAISS reboot and install from disk drive.When very smooth.
