Windows XP - Now Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit).

Wireless? Any problems with a fixed Ethernet connection? Can u try an alternative browser such as FF?

This sounds like a system problem. Do you have any browser plug-ins installed?

Try typing "sfc /scannow"(without quotations) into an elevated command prompt.

See if any errors are reported.

1) Try resetting IE.

Close any open Internet Explorer windows, Click Start, Click Control Panel, Open Internet Options (you may have to switch from category view to icons to find this), Click the Advanced tab, Click Reset...., Click Reset, Click Close, Click OK.

2) If 1) doesnt work, then in IE go to Tools->Internet Options->Advanced Tab
Uncheck "Enable third-party browser extensions".
