You have to set some of your settings for broadband.

Are you using a router?
What firewall are you using?
What AV program?

Do you have any Service Packs installed on your system? With no AV and lacking updates, you'll definitely experience problems. Typically it takes less than 20 minutes for an unprotected computer to get infected.

I'd suggest running a free online scan here: http://safety.live.com/

Then, get an antivirus and antispyware program and use them.

I use AVG Free for my antivirus and the Microsoft Windows Defender beta for my antispyware (both are free).
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.
