I have a machine running Win XP SP3 and IE8. When I try to Login via www.aol.com I get "Cannot display Page", so I RESET IE8 and now it paints part of the Login screen but never finishes. This has been working fine until a couple days ago.

Try to add www.aol.com to the Compatibility view. To do so, click on Tools (the gear in the top left corner), Compatibility view settings and add aol. Make sure to put a check in the box next to Use Microsoft compatibility lists.

I do not think AOL supports IE8 anymore.  Neither does Chrome.

It would be nice if I could find some documentation to back this up.

On the following Microsoft's website there is a tested solution to a similar problem, where they suggest that IE is run in no Add-ons mode and if that fails reset the browser's settings. The third option recommends the author to optimize or upgrade the browser.
