Run Windows Update, or download the standalone installer.

With Windows Update being set to automatic updates by default it's seriously shocking to see someone unable to figure out how to get SP 3 ... (and that's two years after it was released) – Joey Jun 14 '10 at 18:56
I'm just shocked to see people still clinging to XP like it's their mother. – Aren B Jun 14 '10 at 19:23
