A blocking tool is available from Microsoft that would like to temporarily prevent installation of Service Pack updates through Windows Update.If you decide you don't want SP3, Microsoft offers a tool for suppressing the automatic installation of the service pack.

The Service Pack Blocker Tool Kit won't prevent you from downloading SP3 manually from the company's site, nor will it stop you from installing the patches from a CD or DVD. All it does is stop the service pack from being installed via Windows' Automatic Updates.
