it's a startup issue, can't tell what just yet.

Let's try this: type in to the run line: msconfig and hit enter.
You'll see a box popup with a few tabs on it. Select "Start Up" tab
Under this tab, you'll see all the applications/drivers and startup selections checked.
How many do you have checked in this tab? If possible, can you screen shot the startup tab and post it here?

Here is the startup tab. I wasn't sure how to put the picture in the post so it's just a word file.

And a question to Amishdj: just checking to be sure... have you ONLY tried to do something on internet with IE?
In other words, have you checked if non-IE programs, maybe a mailclient or Chrome or Firefox can access internet?
