I use Maxthon with its own pop up blocker ( against malicious adverts) and Malwarebytes virus and trojan remover theserun on Windows XP fine.
Most of Windows software up dates were for there Browser and associated problems do away with it and XP works.
Windows 10 no longer uses the browser. which speaks volumes.
