I thought I had recalled it being SP3, but I think I may be conflating WinXP and Win7 with regard to Service Packs.

Latest Windows Service Packs and Updates (March 2018)

 

QUOTE a bit:

The most recent Windows 7 service pack is SP1, but a Convenience Rollup for Windows 7 SP1 (basically an otherwise-named Windows 7 SP2) is also available which installs all patches between the release of SP1 (February 22, 2011) through April 12, 2016

The latest service packs for other versions of Microsoft Windows include Windows Vista SP2, Windows XP SP3, and Windows 2000 SP4.

In the table below, I've linked directly to the latest Microsoft Windows service packs and major updates for each operating system. These updates are free.

Thanks.   I clearly am conflating WinXP and Win7, even though there is a "secret semi-service pack 2" for Win7.

 

I was looking at a Speccy snapshot and when it showed Windows 7 SP1 this question came into my head.
