Windows 7: Laptop running Windows won't download websites.

Laptop running Windows won't download websites.

Hello, The laptop connects to a website and then won't complete the download. The hour glass stays visable for many minutes or until the system times out. Everything ran fine until about 2 weeks ago. Another laptop using the same router runs OK. I completely reformatted the hard drive and installed a fresh upload of Windows. The problem was unchanged. I turned off the popup blocker. No improvement. Sometimes after the website is reached a message appears that the site is unavailaable. Could there be a problem with a storage area used to receive the website data no longer being available to receive all of the data required.

Thank in advance for your help

Layback Bear, Youu are right. I am using XP. I have seen other posts from XP users seeking support and were getting helpful responses. So I thought I would try. This fourm seemed to have nice and knowledgeful folks. I'll look for another site not dedicated to Windows 7.
Thanks for the reply.
