I think it is definitely worth getting, Windows seems slightly faster and smoother.

No, you don't have to reinstall anything except maybe that ULtheme thing I mentioned.

To install it just double click the file (it is self extracting) and follow the prompts.
awesome - i'm doing it now

thanks

You can still get SP3 from Windows update if you dont run RMS, if Update detects RMS on your system your d/load will be filtered to make SP3 unavailable to you.

Which d/load did you use? Did you pause/restart it? What is your connection speed?

Unless you are running WRMS then there is nothing wrong with it, I'm still running the same SP3 install as I had two weeks ago without any problems.
