|Is this a recent install of XP? Do you have SP3 installed? if not, you should get it ASAP. It's available thru Windows Update but here's a download link in case you want to save a copy for future use?|
IE8 was released about 6 years ago. To get it, just run Windows Update. But as the others have stated, it's outdated & not secure. I suggest you install Firefox or Chrome & not use IE8 at all.
