A lot of websites will no longer work with IE8. Firefox ESR is the last browser to work on XP. Install it and see if you can access the links.
You will need to download the 32bit.
I would consider getting a new computer because XP is out of date and no longer supported with Security Updates. Chromebooks work well for only browsing the internet and looking at email if you cannot budget for a more expensive Windows computer.

Can you provide one of the links. This only happens on certain links, correct?

See if using OpenDNS servers solves the problem. Remember to flush the DNS and browser cache. There is a link on the page showing how to flush DNS.

It looks like a problem with XP. You can attempt to reset TCP/IP. In an admin account open a command prompt and type.
netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
If that does not work open Device Manager. Right click the network adapter you use to connect to the internet. Select Properties. Under the Details tab select Hardware IDs in the dropdown box. Copy and Paste the first line into your next post.

Right click the clock in the System Tray and select Adjust Date and Time. If it allows you to do this then you are an admin.
Click Start > Run and type:
This will open the command prompt. It should have a prompt of C:\Windows\System32
Type the tcp command I posted.

That's not what I was expecting. I was expecting something like in the below page. Vendor and Device ID exactly as shown.
Edit: What is the make and model of the computer? An HP? If a desktop was this network card added later?
From this HP thread the 1394 device is for firewire, not your Ethernet. You are connected via Ethernet or by Wifi?

Is there a service tag number on the side of the computer? Please post it.
I was looking for a Hardware ID similar to this:
Ethernet conroller: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1092&SUBSYS_30BB103C&REV_02

JC, I went through the whole list shown in the XP Hardware Ids and didn't find anything similar to your above example. There is a tag on the side but what is shown are 3 different numbers. 1) Product Key Number: Mod Edit: Removed product key - Hamluis. 2) Numbers below the code bar: 00043-573-260-503 3) Narrow Extreme Right side: X10-60264 These were all the numbers shown there. Hope this helps. Thanks, B1
