Short answer is no, it won't It is a good idea to empty all cookies and temp files, and scan with your anti-virus program and Malware scanner before installing any service packs

By SP3 do you mean the leak of the unreleased beta that has been circulating around recently? I wouldn't let that thing anywhere near my machine.

This beta version of SP3 is a collection of hotfixes, these are all Microsoft fixes but some of these have not been tested and could cause stability issues. I agree with Budapest, I wouldn't download that to my computer.

This is another example of how M$ releases their new software, they release it in a beta form so the the public can find all the bugs for them at the expense of the general public.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
