Why not SP3?
Really, SP2 is a totally outdated system.

Besides that, we don't need unicows.dll on any Windows XP installation,
WinXP is UniCode enabled. unicows.dll ist just for Win9x.

Maybe you mixed unicows.dll with the notorious uwinapi.dll that at least
has some value on WinXP, though it's unclear how much.
