After investigation I found that port 80 was blocked. I did a netsh winsock reset and rebooted and that cleared it up for a while. Then IE started randomly closing and re-opening. Based on other search for this problem I uninstalled AVG client and the reinstalled the latest from our server and it seems to be fixed. I think it was a corrupted AVG installation

Virus!  Winsockxp Fix will repair the proxy/port issues but you need to get the virus, malware, and spyware all removed for long term success.
