Welcome to the FixYa Site!
Windows XP Service Pack 3 is a collection of updates designed by Microsoft to enhance the stability and performance of the Microsoft Operating System.
However there are critical things to check for , such as program compatibility and driver compatibility.
Its critical to disable Antivirus / Firewall Software and disconnect your network cable while performing this update to avoid outside online distractions :)
If your computer is working fine now, I would not update at this time. However , there may be a time where the only way to get updates is to update to SP3.
(This has been a policy since SP2 that only new updates are available to the newest Service Pack only)
