First of all, you should never install an SP on a system that has problems.
If anything, the SP is likely to make things worse rather than better.
Secondly, as you can plainly tell, this sytem with XP SP3 and IE8 definitely
can access the internet. Last week, when I was still using IE7, the system
could access the internet.
My son's system can also access the internet using IE8. His testimonial to
that effect was what caused me to go to IE8.
So, my opinion is that there is something amiss with your system.
