internet is not letting me do anything really

Specs: Windows XP
my friend gave me his old computer so i hooked everything up. i run a wired connection to the back of my att uverse box and it picks up the internet. here's the thing... i can only use the internet on internet explorer. and sometimes ill get this error message that says it cant connect to the site. (even though it loaded the page and im looking at it) i also cannot download anything. it let me download firefox, but when it finished, i clicked on it, typed in an address and it says it cannot acces the internet. then i tried downloading google chrome. it wouldnt even let me download it. it said that it couldnt access the internet to install it.
after that i found someone saying to download the google chrome stand alone(i think thats what it was called.) it downloaded, but the same thing happened as what happened to firefox, couldnt access the internet.

I bet he has Norton of some other garbage running on it. Check that & all firewall settings.
