Ok...  I don't know a ton about computers.  I'm not totally retarded on the subject either.  I tried to search for an answer but haven't had any luck.  I will try to post as much info as possible to make it on whomever is able to help me (PLEASE) :)

I have a DELL Inspiron e1505
XP -   Media Center edition Version 2002
Service pack 2
1gb ram
80gb harddrive

I'm not sure if its IE 6 or 7

OK, so here's the problem.  Everything was A-OK one day...  Did nothing out of the ordinary at all.  Next day when we used the laptop MSN and yahoo messengers would not sign in.  Every single webpage we try to open we have to refresh multiple times before it will open.  and some websties wont load at all.  I thought maybe it was a virus and scanned with norton with nothing to come of it.  I reinstalled our dsl/router to see if that would fix the problem and didn't help either.  I do not know what to do to fix the problem.  It is such a pain in the *censored* I had getting on the internet.  ANYONE that can help I would appreciate it more then you know!!!  Thanks so much in advance.  We have another laptop on our same dsl/router and it works perfectly...

Welcome aboard ;D

I understand, that you are very limited with accessing Internet, but if you're able to download Firefox, do so to see, if same thing will happen.

Try free on-line virus scan: http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

If it comes up clean, get TCP Optimizer: http://www.speedguide.net/downloads.php
When you run it , select "Optimal Settings", and click "Apply Changes". Restart your computer.

If that doesn't help follow this steps:
