You should be able to navigate to C:\Windows and right-click the folder $NtServicePackUninstall$ and click properties. The created date should be the date SP3 was installed. This is a hidden folder though, so you'll have to check the box that says show hidden files and folders.

Windows XP SP3 log file should be located in c:\windows\svcpack.log and should have the information you need.

Hi calbackup,

What tplaya07 was explaining is you should see something like this. I highlighted what that service pack was created, as it means installed.

Keep in mind, that if it fails the installation, then that date might give you a false reading...... I have seen instances where it failed, and yet created a folder structure for the uninstaller.....
