And if so, where?

The reason I'm interested is that all the tax software requires it.

It can be found here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24   Although it says you should install it from Windows Update, I don't know whether it is still available there.

I agree with Dave. I went to Microsoft -> Downloads and into XP and found SP3 there.

Thank you. I was happy to help and amplify the point that you could still download SP3. I am glad you gave most of the points to Dave.
