I am trying to load SP3.   During load i get a message that I need administrator right to install.

I am loging on as administrator.  

I am also logging on as  other users that are part of domain admin group and local admin group.

I have used Microsoft download to get sp3 and downloaded from technet.

What is the problem.

It sounds like you don't have registry permissions.  
There could be domain restrictions via active directory.
Have you tried turning off your antivirus program before installing?

Have you tried logging into the local machine (not the domain) as an administrator and instaling the SP3
If you have to - create a new local user with full admin privs
