WinXP in VBox internet for google but nothing else?


I have finally got around to trying to use the software I Wanted to use in winxp however as the software has a virus in it I wanted to install a virus checker first, however despite the vbox giving it internet access, I can only seem to access which does work because I can put a search term in it and is shows the results. However avg, and sky news wont load up, I just get a weird connection error issue. SP 3 was installed successfully, do these sites not load up because they need added security downloaded from the MS website? I didn't want to go downloading updates of MS prematurely because the software itself might not work (remember I am using winxp because its old software). Thanks in advance for any advice.

As its a vbox the virus issue dont really matter, just wondered why no internet for the other sites.

You'll be lucky if much of anything internet wise will work in XP. TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 are getting deprecated and XP doesn't support higher than TLS 1.0
