    Are you trying to browse with IE8? If you've got a flash drive or a blank CD-R you can burn to, I'd try to put a newer browser on there and then copy it to your computer/install it. For the best possible security and compatibility with modern web standards I recommend Mypal (https://github.com/Feodor2/Mypal/releases).

    IE8 sucks but if you must use it you can go to options or internet options and change security level. I've never had this problem but I know you can set security levels in IE through the Control Panel of win XP.

    Try firefox 25 for very simply light browsing, ie creiagslist and forums, Firefox 37 to 52 for a better media experience or Mypal 27 .
