How long did it take you to upgrade from SP2 to SP3? When I went
from SP1 to SP2 it took 2-3 hours.

I only have 512M Ram and only 10G if disk space so I'm not sure if I
should upgrade to SP3.

Finish repairing, cleaning up and backing up your system (per your other
many postings throughout the Microsoft newsgroups) and *then* - once
everything is running well and backed up - turn your concern to updating to
SP3.
