I have a Windows 7 machine that began having issues yesterday. It will run extremely sluggish, locking up for a couple of seconds to a minute, then operating fine, then locking up again. It is also having an issue with not going to certain sites, such as Google (although I can get to Google by entering the IP). I have run checks on the memory, hard disks and swapped the hard disk into an identical case to rule out a possible motherboard issue. Several virus scans have come up with nothing. I have been doing a lot of restarts and testing and have determined the issue only occurs when running in normal mode with a network connection.
