should fix all your browsing problems
Try to repair your Internet Explorer. Try also to scan you computer for virus and trojan. Virus or a trojan might have damaged your IExplorer.
The easiest thing to do in this case would be to delete your user profile from that system and create one again. control panel- user accounts- remove/add.

As has already been posted you could simply use another browser like firefox or netscape.  If you enjoy using IE and have a lot of desktop information that you would prefer to keep deleting the profile may not the best opiton for you.  

Have you run or are you running any ad-ware/spy-ware removal utilities?  If so I have known a few to corrupt the IE winsock rendering IE useless.  Here is one of the utilities that I have found to repair IE.

Hope this helps.
