There were issues like this a while back due to a problem with Windows Update. Try temporarily turning it off to see if that's it. If so, go to the Windows Update site and get all the updates that you're missing - that should fix the issue.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
