    Yesterday I had the usual MS message saying that updates were available, and
    when I looked at what the updates were, it was Service Pack 3. I said OK
    for the download and installation, but nothing seems to have changed, and
    under "System Information" the OS is listed as 5.1.2600 SP2 Build 2600.

    So has SP3 (which I understand was mainly a load of updates which I may
    already have installed) actually been installled or not?

    If sp3 is installed sys.information will show sp3, not sp2
