If you’re successfully connected to the Internet but cannot view any webpages in Internet Explorer, use one of the following troubleshooting procedures, as appropriate for your operating system.

i)- Delete your browser history
ii)- Disable add-ons in Internet Explorer
iii)- Reset Internet Explorer
iv)- Check whether a third-party service or program is conflicting with Internet Explorer
v)- Restore your PC to an earlier point in time

Details steps

Method 1: Use Internet Explorer (IE) by temporarily disable all add-ons. You can do this by following the steps below.
1. Click the Start button and select click All Programs,
2. Click Accessories and then click on System Tools,
3. Click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).
 
Use the Manage Add-ons tool to determine which add-on is causing the issue
 
1.      Open Internet Explorer.
2.      Click Tools, and then click Manage Add-ons.
3.      On the Show drop-down menu, select All add-ons to display all add-ons that are installed on the computer.
4.      For each item in this list, select the add-on, and then click Disable in the Information window.
5.      When you have disabled all the items in this list, click OK.
6.      Exit and then restart Internet Explorer.
7.      If issues do not reoccur, repeat steps 1 through 3.
8.      Click Enable for a single add-on.
9.      Repeat steps 6 through 8 until you determine which add-on causes errors to occur.


If the above method didn’t work then, optimize IE using the below steps.
 
Method 2: Optimize Internet Explorer.
1: Clear cached data in Internet Explorer
 
a) Open Internet Explorer.
b) Click Safety, and then click Delete Browsing History.
c) In Delete Browsing History area, click Delete.
 
2: Reset security settings for Internet Explorer

>>>have limitation not to update IE and OS

Then you have no hope of continuing to access the internet easily.  All obsolete software quits working in modern environments at some point.  You either upgrade or watch the circle of sites you can actually access shrink until you lose everything.  

XP is dead, and IE7 was junk to begin with and never should have been released;  now it is history and the world is a better place.

10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

Did you know that ransomware is the most widespread, destructive malware in the world today? It accounts for 39% of all security breaches, with ransomware gangsters projected to make $11.5B in profits from online extortion by 2019.

Dr. KlahnPrincipal Software EngineerCommented:
Microsoft has "deprecated" older versions of Internet Explorer and the Microsoft web sites have been modified to make it difficult to use older versions.  You can try upgrading to IE8, but in my experience that does not solve the issue.

Switching to Firefox won't solve the issue as Microsoft detects when anything other than Internet Explorer is being used to view their web site, and does their best to break the page.

A solution I've found that sometimes works:  Use Firefox and load the User Agent Switcher plugin.  Then set the browser identifier to IE 10.  This sometimes fools the MS sites.

IE 7 was obsolete on Windows XP long before Windows XP became obsolete. There should be no reason that IE 7 wasn't upgraded five years ago. Any dependencies should have been resolved before IE 8 was released. If a decision was made to stay with the dependencies, then the decision was made not to access web sites that required newer browser versions. You can't expect obsolete software to continue working for all newer pages.

The only problems that I have with Microsoft sites using current releases of Firefox on Windows XP are when I want to access Microsoft Update areas. And I can't expect those to be useful for Windows XP anyway.

If you can't upgrade the OS nor IE 7, then install a second browser. If a second browser doesn't work with a given site, then post the web address so we can see if there is an alternative. (That includes Microsoft addresses since they need to be available when IE problems arise that require support.)
