    Installed a new hard drive, loaded XP Home from original discs. Google Browser often says site can not be reached. Reboot and Browser may work a time or two then same thing. Downloaded FlashPeak
    Slimjet Browser which worked slightly better but same problem. I need a reliable Browser to work with XP Home. Think I tried Firefox and it said no longer supported.

    Thanks,
    Walt Conner

    Avast won't work. Follow j896's advice and use Mypal.

    For FireFox, try the 52.4 version:

    https://malwaretips.com/threads/mozilla-firefox-56-0-final-52-4-0-esr.75776/

    You may have to clean out any remnants of any previous one you installed, and you will need to fight Mozilla to prevent auto-updates....they have an OCD-like fixation on surreptitiously forcing updates.

    All the chrome/chromium based browsers are ruined by the CA nazis and their embedded CA security certificates store, that can neither be uninstalled nor updated. Use of them will get you pretty much blockaded from half the URLs you want to go to, via a load of different security errors (most of which you cannot click through).

    The browsers I currently use are Firefox, MYpal, and Centaury.
