    Not familiar with Windows7, but check your DNS entries. You have registry pointing to 202.188.0.133 and 202.188.1.5. These IPs are registered in Malaysia. Make sure those are your ISP's DNS servers.
    Some viruses may try to re-direct your DNS to another server, which in turn re-defines web sites to what "they" want you to look at. If these are foreign DNS servers, you will be delayed on web browsing while the DNS lookups occur if the DNS servers are slow.
