SP 2

Hi, I have a windows XP Home Edition laptop.  I've just loaded a Video program that says to update my XP Version to Service Pack 2.  I looked under System in the control panel and it shows that I have Service Pack 3.  I went to the Microsoft web site and they say they no longer offer SP2.  What should I do?  The program has a yellow question mark under Device Manager.  I was under the impression that SP 3 included ALL of the previous versions.  Should I re-install SP 3?
