Re: XP Service Pack 3 Kills AMD Machines

Since SP3 requires you to accept an EULA, I don't think auto updates is going to install it without user intervention.  It will probably start the installation and pop up the EULA screen and wait until you accept it and tell it to go forward.  That will give you time to shut down everything running on your computer including your AV before allowing SP3 to install.
