✔ Best Answer
Download and install Firefox and use that for web browsing instead of Internet Explorer:

Microsoft no longer supports IE8, IE9 or IE10 (and later versions won't run on Vista anyway) so I strongly urge you to stop using it & use Firefox instead.

My wife and I stopped using Internet Explorer on our two PCs years ago for several reasons, as have millions of other computer users worldwide. Get wise and stop using it.

Just because it's built in to Windows doesn't mean you have to use it!

If you want to try to fix IE for fallback purposes then try this:
Go to IE > Tools > Internet Options > Advanced > Hit Reset button.

However I agree with phil22, Firefox is the way to go.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Thanks for letting us know. Firefox is very similar to IE so you should get on with it OK.

I'm runnin IE 8 on this xp computer and not getting security errors.

Check your system clock date too. Security certificates are valid only for a specific period of time. If your computer clock is way off it may fall outisde the valid period. Sometimes just changing the cmos battery will hold the correct time.

You will lose addons but they soon come back with usage, also any specific settings you have changed, such as the home page. You will not lose Favorites so it is should be no big deal.

Just to add, Firefox usually offers to import your Favorites, if not there are probably ways so give us a shout if necessary.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

You are safer with Firefox but there might be some odd situation (MS maybe) where IE helps.
