Laptop will only surf through a few pages then stops. PC still pings through the cmd console

Toshiba Satellite laptop will surf for about 4 minutes after being booted,  then stops; however, I can still ping websites through the command console.  I have disabled any and all security software with no conclusion.  This happens on all ethernet devices wired, or wireless.  Firefox does the same thing...  other than this the computer acts and seems perfectly fine.

the last trial is to reinstall the tcp/ip stack before format could help

Could you elaborate on what you mean by it "stopping"?  When attempting to visit a website using a browser, does connecting time out, outright fail, or does an error message appear?  Do you currently have any proxy settings configured for your web browsers?

If "ping" still works, this almost certainly is a software issue. Try safe mode with network and see if same things happen, or test with a live CD (e.g. Knoppix).

If it only happens in "unsafe mode", do a virus and spyware scan and chack what processes are running.

The browser after several pages will give the "page cannot be displayed" error.  Sorry I was in a hurry when I posted the question....  It happens in safe mode with networking, and I've scanned for spyware and viruses with everything I know of.   I have not tried a live cd yet, but I will do that now.  This is the strangest thing I've seen in awhile.  The laptop will do anything on the network, just not browse webpages past about 6-8 pages.  and will only browse pages after startup leading me to believe a startup object is the culprit, however I've been unable to find whatever the cause is.

I've tried all of that.   Besides the same thing happens if different browsers such as firefox.  If there are no other sugestions I suppose I'll have to Format/Reinstall.
