Windows 7: Lose Internet connection when I open a folder

Lose Internet connection when I open a folder

I've been experiencing this issue for awhile now and haven't found a rhyme or reason for it occurring, but whenever I open a folder my internet connection will stop and go to limited access. I don't really know what information I can give that can give hint to the problem, but some suggestions would be great.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.
What type of internet connection do you have?. For example, is it through a wifi set up, ADSL, wireless broadband, high speed cable, etc..
Does opening any particular folder cause this problem, or is the folder associated with a particular website that you are visiting.
