Web Browing Ground to a halt...


I have a Toshiba laptop which is about 6 months old and running XP Tablet Edition.

It was working fine, but yesterday, the web ground to a halt.

It generally seems to work fine, but web browsing is too slow as to be completely unusable.

I have tried another PC and the ADSL line is fine.

I have tried :
- restarting numerous times
- scandisks
- Removing Norton Internet Security 2007
- Running ccleaner
- Running Disk Cleanup

The web is unusable on both IE7 and FireFox.

Any ideas what it could be or how to fix it?
