I think I figured out the the problem. I reformated the drive, re-installed windows 7 64 pro again and the problem still
existed. I again checked the ASRock web site for updated LAN device driver
and found I had the current one from their site. In checking device manager for any driver issues I noticed the LAN device as a "Realtek PCIe GBE Family controller" so I went to Realtek's web site, found the current driver from their site and installed it.
As soon as I installed it internet access started working correctly. All web sites were accessible and displayed correctly.
SO... seems the driver installed with the ASRock A75M motherboard is defective. Anyone with that MB might want to download and install a new LAN driver from the Realtek site.
Thank to everyone for your help trying to resolve this.
