Belkin Wireless modem/router problems

A few months ago I ran a similar topic, the reason why I have done another is that I need some more help... (pulling my hair out) ARGH!!

First things first, my computer runs Windows XP Home, the other wired computer runs on Windows 98. I have two laptops (not really mine!!) on wireless, Windows XP Pro.
The wireless computers do not have a single problem, what so ever.
My computer only talks to my mums laptop, (when all computers have been linked up) As far as am aware the other computers talk.
The major hair pulling problem, which I have contacted Technical support about, is that websites do NOT load up at all, or partially, for example
1. The default windows error cannot load page.
2. eg Hotmail website, does not load up the blue images for the e-mail.
I sent the security log to the tech support, and they have said that a program keeps accessing the internet with out my knowledge and the onboard firewall locks down after a while. I was recomended SpyBot Search and Destroy, deleted alot of spyware but has not solved the problem.
They then have suggested to Re-format, hard disk... eek!
They are the fourth person to tell me to re-format.
Is there anything I should check before i put my computer into maintenance for the day, and also how do i REFORMAT?
