Can you ping any other web sites? Or DNS servers? MOst cash registers are still running XP so I troubleshoot on it quite often.

Open up a command prompt (Run > "cmd") and type "ping 8.8.8.8" and see if it works, times out, or says unreachable.

Open a command prompt and run the command ipconfig which will tell you about the various IP settings for your computer. Post a screenshot so we can see it.

I always hesitate to ask about Windows XP because peeps seem to reply all about this security stuff and write to change to a newer Windows version. I do not like 7 or 10. Too complicated and ai hate this virtual XP option.

Anyway again this is what I see.



Here is the results.

By the way I still get updates on Windows XP as recent as last night.

Using Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 Version 2002.

I do have an ethernet cable as well. But even using that option internet connection is not working.

Same exact disk so service pack 3. I just read in the disk Service Pack 3.

Are we sure having Windows installed on drive E will not make any difference. I am guessing when i chose a partition to format the computer made the drive letter E.

Is there any particular reason you are running XP? Without much effort you could get Windows 10. Even without an activation key...

In fact, Windows 10 runs much better than previous versions. The only downside I can see is all the background updates it runs, but if you have a good internet connection and you are not running on battery you'll be just fine.

So you are not a noob when it comes to Windows 10. Unless there are some compatibility problems, there is no reason to be hanging on to XP or Vista. Even Windows 7 is acceptable, but XP is just too old.

That is why I hesitate to ask for help in these forums. I like XP. Much better interface than 7 or 10 has. I judt want help with XP not reasons why XP is not any good anymore.

Well, then, you'll have to provide maybe a little more information.

What have you tried? Are you sure you are not infected? Have you tried another browser?

Also, you should never hesitate to ask any questions. You may have to put up with our geek nonsense, but once you get past that you'll encounter some good stuff

What browser are you using? Last I remember Internet Explorer wasn't able to open many sites anymore. You could try firefox and see if that works.

Well Firefox requires a Windows 7 or and above. Will see if Opera works.

When install Opera there is a installed for XP that will not down load on this computer. Will now see if Chrome works.

Seems like each browser has some excuse not to work. I will have a computer repairer fix this for me.

Looks like version 52 of Firefox was the last to support XP from what I read.

This page on Mozilla's site lists all previous versions for download. You might give that a go and see if one of the older versions will work for you.

See I would use my other computer that has which Windows XP. But every time plug in a USB cable the computer shuts off.

52 Did not install but version 5.0 did.

HEY!!! Appreciate the help. If i can connect to Microsoft i am sure the other web pages will work. Microsoft works.

Still do not understand why the other browsers do not. Might get older versions of the as well.

There is always a downside. Firefox does not remember passwords or open PDF files from a webpage.
