The x86 32 bit SP2 will not work on your system.

I tried downloading the update for x64 and saved it to my desktop. When I run the .exe it begins to extract the files to some folder on the c:\. The extraction gets to the very end and stops and gives me an error message saying:
"Extraction Failed: amd64\update\update.exe is not a valid Win32 application." What do I do?

1. On the taskbar at the bottom of your screen, click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Run dialog box, type: winver
NOTE: If you're using Windows Vista, type winver into the Search box.
3. Click OK.
A dialog box displays the version that you are running.
Start - Run - enter MSINFO32.
On the Summary page if your System Type is X86, then you have 32 bit.
If you have the 32 bit system, try downloading it from here and run it.
But , of course you know there is a SP3 update.
