Windows 7: Cannot Download any files from internet

Cannot Download any files from internet

I have recently installed Windows 7 on both my laptop and my desktop, my laptop is fine, but I cannot download or run any files on my desktop. I have tried using both IE8 and Firefox, but no luck. I have deleted all add ons on IE8, and was able to download 1 file from my email, and then IE crashed, and once I have restarted it, I couldn't download anything again. Can somebody help me to figure out what can I do to try to fix this.
Thanks,

It is the same license, installed from the same CD.

You can only use one licensed copy on one computer, not two.

So does that mean that I have to get another copy of Windows 7 or go back to XP in order to be able to download anything from the Internet, or is it fixable?

It is not "fixable". If you want to have Seven on two computers, you need to get two valid licenses.

So does mean that if I have installed Win 7 on both computers, first one will work fine and on the second one I will not be able to download anything off the internet?
