XP Won't Update

I have just completed a factory restore on a Compaq Presario PC. The factory restore states that it is Windows XP home edition with service Pack 2. Problem now is I cannot download any Windows updates. A web search revealed that in order to download Windows updates I need service Pack 3 installed. Trouble is I am going round in circles trying to find service Pack 3. Is it Windows XP Service Pack 3 Network Installation Package for IT Professionals and Developers or is there another version?

Once sp3 is installed (if you have problems do it in safemode) turn on auto updates and they'll trickle through as and when. MS doesn't scan the pc like it used to for required updates.
