New website of income tax e-filing can’t be loaded on many computers where the Windows XP is installed. The error occurs with message “Invalid Certificate” or with some other wordings in different browsers. Some people have misconception that only Mozila Firefox can open this site, but its totally incorrect. Why can’t we use other web browsers like IE, Chrome, Opera, NN etc.? Here is the solution for this problem.
Your PC must be having Windows XP Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2. But all you need to open this site in any browser without any difficulty is Windows XP Service Pack 3. Microsoft occasionally releases service packs for its Windows operating systems to fix problems and add features. Each service pack is a superset of all previous service packs and patches so that only the latest service pack needs to be installed. Thus, Windows XP Service Pack 3 is a cumulative update of all previous service packs for XP.
Following is the link to download Service Pack 3.
Size of that file is nearly 316 MB, so you are advised to use some download manager/accelerator utility.
