    Sounds like a firewall problem or a virus maybe ? Try an online scan see what it says .

    I agree with the possible firewall issue, but really you'd be better getting someone you know personally to help you cause there is a long list of possible explanations. That and you should be getting pop-ups from your firewall whether or not to "allow", "deny", "outbound", etc.

    Were there any hardware changes? Like a router installed?

    Reinstall IE and set it as your default browser, that should sort it.

    You know mine does this when two users are logged in on my computer, but a simple restart "fixes" it.
