Hello Ruben! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer / network professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. So you've reinstalled windows xp, but it still happens. Does this issue occur in both AOL and Internet Explorer programs? If you have another computer, does the Internet work fine on that computer? Have you tried the following:

  1. Close all Internet Explorer windows and folders.
  2. Click Start , and then click Control Panel.
  3. Open Internet Options. Then click on Delete and delete only temporary internet files.
  4. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Reset.
  5. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset. Then check.

If that does not work, I suggest to use Firefox; it's faster and more reliable. Please download and install Firefox program below:

(keep all default options during installation.)
, then open Firefox, and go to any website in Firefox and see if it works fine in Firefox.

Please let me know if there is still any issue. Thank you.

That's okay. How about trying Firefox You can back up your files, then do a disk check to check on the hard drive.

  1. Open My Computer
  2. Right-click on the C: drive, then click on Properties.
  3. Click the Tools tab, and then, under Error-checking, click Check now.
  4. Then check both boxes and click on Start, and confirm yes, and continue.


If you need anything else, please let me know any time. Thank you
