Maybe try Driver Max to see if any of your Drivers need updating.Try a defrag if you have run all Microsoft updates.
Or maybe try Command Prompt.Type in ipconfig /flushdns small gap between ipconfig and forward slash or it will not work.Ok.It should tell you Dns cache has been flushed if so reboot and see if it makes any difference.

Did you leave a gap between ipconfig and forward slash.

Never known for it to act like that before.Not sure if this will work very well if you have just reformated.But you could try Winaso Optimizer.[free] It will only repair 10 items at a time but you can run it as often as you like.
What Security programs have you got including Firewall.And have you ran any scans.

  birdface 23:14 02 Apr 2009 here It also does an automatic back up and has a registry defrag with it that you can use at anytime.I use it and it usually sorts any problems out on my computer.It should run a bit quicker after use.

using avg 8, it had a resident sheild which slowed it down, its firewall is off, windows is on, the avg crashes before it completes a scan tho

8.5 free edition you here

Maybe try Malwarebytes free or Superantispyware free.Those are 2 of the best Anti-Spyware programs.
Got to go bed time.Best of luck.
