Default xp sp3

Greeting everyone! Im new to the forum and I come in peace!

I do have a question. I have a simple single core computer that I recently purchased to run older games. I have installed XP Sp1 and Im trying to udate to SP3. The windows update page seems to be running me in circles. The update listed is for IT and networking.

Where do I get the SP3 update?

Many thanks!

Download: Windows XP Service Pack 3 Network Installation Package for IT Professionals and Developers - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details

This is where I'm stuck. This is not recommended for a single computer. I cannot find the sp3 for a single computer.

Go to start > all programs > windows update and continue updating until you get SP3
