There's absolutely no good reason to not install SP3 then. As already noted, if you are still worried about breaking something make a backup image of the hard drive first. (FWIW the only thing I have ever seen break due to SP3 was some HP printer drivers.)
Getting back to your original question, I think we can summarize as follows:
1. The amount of RAM being used looks reasonable given the number of background services you are loading on startup.
2. If the system is slowing down when running your applications, you need to look at whether this is a RAM issue, CPU issue, or I/O issue. Use Task Manager (or Process Explorer) to figure out whether there's a particular process that is hogging the RAM and/or CPU. Does the hard drive light stay on continuously when the slowdowns occur, indicating an I/O bottleneck?
3. You've got multiple license servers running. Each one of these consumes system resources. Disable any that are for products you no longer use, or that you use only infrequently. You probably ought to ditch Advanced System Care 3 regardless.
I should also point out that there are some suspicious looking files on your system. Rpcapd.exe in particular is a packet sniffer, designed to snoop on network traffic. Unless you intentionally installed this for some reason (why?), I'd say odds are high that you've got a malware infection. Just one more reason that you NEED to install SP3 and run a full malware scan with something like Malwarebytes.
