what OS/IE version

try firefox, you can DL it with your sis's machine and use a usb disk to transfer

also run a virus scan just in case.

Uninstall AVG and then run their Removal Tool. You can re-install it later after determining whether it is the cause of your problem.

And then do these repairs ...

(From a JohnWill post)

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or 7.

Start, Programs\Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.
