Default My browser will not connect to some web pages.

One is download.com. I see this blank screen. This is on AVANT browser. ImageUploadedByComputer Forums1483837731.673362.jpg

I also see this on Internet Explorer

I use uBlock Origin in Firefox and it blocks the site.

I would avoid download.com anyway. Try a site that tests everything before it goes up on the site, majorgeeks.com.

Internet Explorer on XP is probably going to have issues loading a lot of sites. Never heard of AVANT so I can't say anything about that. Stick with Chrome, Firefox, and Safari and you'll be fine. (As fine as is possible on windows XP, that is.)

1st I'd like to say that the Chrome browser no longer supported by windows xp and windows vista....I would use Firefox instead on your xp machine

No problems on my computers. Just connecting to two web pages. Mynother XP computer connects to all wep pages. XP has a better file search feature. Wordpad is simpler up use on WINDIWS XP.

You are not safe going on the Internet with an xp computer anyways without having your data stolen and/or your system jacked and infested so it's probably a good thing you can't connect to it.

I agree and my choice is to warn people putting themselves at risk, potentially unknowingly.
Believe it or not, a lot of the type of people that still use XP are completely unaware they are giving predictors an easy victim.
