Did *you* manually download XP Service Pack 3 or was it downloaded by
automatic updates ? The message is telling you that too many things are
going on at once for the Service Pack to install.
Suggest you manually download and *save* the standalone SP3 package:

Professionals and Developers

next to United States toward the top right of the page and set it to
your country/language. *
Once the download completes create a folder on the root drive ( the
drive where Windows is installed to, which is usually C:\ ) and move SP3

Install SP3 now, allow the system to restart each time it requests to.
