Try booting to Safe Mode with Networking, see how things behave.

If the problem goes away then something is starting at boot time that is causing the problem, or a Internet Explorer Add-on is causing the problem.

Boot normally, then start IE without Add-ons.

Click on Start, type iexplore -extoff and press Enter.

You will get an IE window like this:

Click on Home to go to your normal Home page. See how things are. If okay then use Tools / Manage Add-ons to disable them a few at a time till you find the culprit.

If that doesn't make any difference then Use msconfig to determine what is causing the problem

This is a good tutorial on using msconfig in Windows 7:
How to use msconfig in Windows 7

Click on Start, type msconfig and press Enter.
Click on the Startup tab, record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Reboot and see if it runs better.
If yes then use msconfig to enable several items at a time till you find the culprit.

If no, start msconfig and click on the Services tab.
Check the Hide All Microsoft Services box, record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Again, do a regular boot, see if it runs normal.
If yes then use msconfig to enable services till you find the culprit.

Once you've found the culprit, uninstall it or find out how to eliminate it from your system. Simply disabling it in msconfig is a temporary fix at best.

Enable everything else you disabled.
