sorry for the bad english,
Lately my notebook (Lenovo) having the same problem. and i also realized there's some random sub program on the taskbar, the icon was like a padlock, a black padlock. When i clicked, nothing appears. It was like, it just there whenever the internet was on.
Like your friend's notebook, my notebook work normally if it was not connected to the internet, and that black padlock icon was missing.
Do you guys know how to remove that annoying sub program? because i tried to find it in programs and features in the control panel, but it was not there.
