XP/IE8 with dial-up will not bring up website

Specs: Windows XP, Intel P4 3.0GHz-512MB
My dad has a Dell 3000, XP, Norton2009, IE8, with a dial-up using Earthlink. Has always been acceptably slow but all of a sudden IE won't bring up home page (MarketWatch.com), other websites either take forever or window is returned saying cannot connect. I have reloaded modem sw, updated drivers, System Mechanic (antivirus/anitspyware) registry cleaner, and other things I can't even remember. I would greatly appreciate ANY suggestions. Thanks!

"and other things I can't even remember"

Might one of them have been emptying the temporary internet files folder?
