Unable to download Service Pack 3

Can anyone suggest me any download links for Windows XP service pack 3? I have already turned off virus protection but I am getting this error message "Service Pack 3 Setup encountered an error: The update.ver file is not correct." I am not able to get any information on this update.ver file. Any ideas?

Even I am facing a similar kind of problem on my other computer when I applied the SP3. I have downloaded the ISO image from Microsoft website and created an SP3 CD. It worked pretty fine, and I can use it again if I find another computer.
