    Hello all,

    I rebooted this laptop and currently run WINDOWS XP version 2002 Service Pack 3

    This machine has Internet Explorer version 6.0 and the internet is connected as well.

    Problem:

    I am able to search everything on google but as soon as I click on any of the pages to move to the other page IE is giving me the error of - "The page cannot be displayed"

    I am not sure what is the issue with the Internet Explorer if it's giving me various options while using the search bar and the internet is well connected as well but not loading any pages further. Pls, anyone helps me to fix his and pls guide.



    Thank you in advance for your help! [​IMG]

    The Internet Explorer 6.0 browser is massively out of date and no longer supports web sites.
    That's why "This page cannot be displayed" appears when you try to load a web site with it.

    You need a modern browser which is supported by Windows XP SP3.
    MyPal 29.0.1 will work fine and will load almost every web site out there.

    Select the mypal-29.0.1.win32.installer.exe file to download and install.

    I've never used Skype or Zoom, so someone else here will need to address your request.

    I have doubts though that either will work properly or work at all with Windows XP SP3.

    Skype is no longer supported in Windows XP, not even the web client will work. Zoom version 5 still works in XP, at least it did last time I tried on Oct 2020.
