Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
No XP SP3 does not reformat your hard drive, but you will want to make sure that your current applications will be compatible with SP3. Not all legacy software that runs on Win XP SP2 will run on SP3, so be prepared to either delete non-operational software or return the system to an earlier state to remove SP3 should you need the use of that software that is not compatible. Sometimes the authoring software company will provide an update to one of your applications which is compatible with SP3, but not always.

Your computer does not reformat when installing SP3, updates will never reformat your computer

Do one of the following:
If you downloaded SP3 from the website, to install it immediately, click Open or Run and follow the instructions on your screen. To install the program later, click Save and download the installation file to your computer. When you're ready to install the service pack, double-click the file.
If you're installing SP3 from the Service Pack 3 CD, insert the disc into your computer with your current version of Windows XP running, and the Software Update Installation Wizard should automatically appear. If this wizard doesn't appear, click Start, double-click My Computer, right-click your CD or DVD drive, and then click AutoPlay.
On the Windows XP Service Pack 3 page, click Next.
Follow the instructions that appear on your screen.
After the installation is complete, click Finish to restart your computer.
If you disabled your antivirus software, enable it again.
