Hi, I have a work laptop that i have just noticed times out on using the internet. I am currently using internet explorer 7. It is fine for 5 minutes and if i reboot it works again for another 5 minutes. If i run trace route or ping google that all seems to work fine. It also works for https and ftp so can go to secure sites just not http?!.

Anything anyone can help me at all would be greatly appreciated.

Things I have tried so far:
Reinstalled internet explorer
virus scan
