Have you installed any Antivirus program? Try disabling it and then install any software and check if the issue persists.

Uninstall the AVG bloatware and install recommended Microsoft Security Essentials.

Turn on the Windows Firewall and keep it updated automatically with all Important and Optional Updates.

Did you follow the Best Practices for reinstall in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which are the same for retail?

Work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.
