In August of 2008, automatic updates downloaded xp3 but it never could be installed. I've looked under search for 936929, but it comes up empty. Where can I find the download and check to see if it's the current sp3?

I meant SP3!!!

To the best of my knowledge SP3 was not changed since being introduced by Microsoft. There are over 80 updates that were added since then and, in due course, Microsoft will group them to SP4.

There can be several causes for the problem: either the file that you downloaded is corrupt or there is something in your system that prevents SP3 installation. The first case is easy to test: download SP3 from Microsoft, as suggested by happyrock. before you install it disable your antimalware programs and run disk defragmentation. If it works, fine. If not, don't force it. Many times the installation of SP3 (like SP2 before) cause serious problems. If it doesn't work and if you don't need it for a specific reason, don't install it. Wait for a time that you format your computer and then install it on the freshly formated system.
