    Go to windows update and download all available updates. Also make sure that you do not have an active firewall blocking the sites. How are you connected. Maybe your provider blocks the pictures and you must plick somewhere to allow them

    i recommend using another browser like firefox. Or just running a spyware check.Adaware is pretty good.

    run adaware. what virus scanner do you have some are better than others. same thing goes for spyware/malware software. Your internet connection being on and the loadup of your primary webpage shows that it almost definitely is some sort of spyware that hogs up all your memory, most likey a trojan. Using the right sofware will do. Kaspersky is a great antivirus as well as spyware protectant. adaware will do a free scan. Go to iolo.com for free system check using the system mechanic 7 package . Its a free trial and will clean up almost everything as well as scan for viruses. All good ways to solve the problem. System mechanic is all in one and free so id try that first good luck
