It would sure help us if we knew the operating system on the computer...
Have you tried using a different browser such as the free Firefox below? It may be a problem with Internet Explorer but there's no way to know till you try something else.
Also, have you checked your computer for malware? If not, please download, install, update, then run a full system scan with both free malware removal tools below:
Hitman Pro 3.5
And when you're done, check your LAN settings in Internet Explorer like this:
Open Internet Explorer and go to Tools-Internet Options-Connection Tab. Click on the LAN settings button. IF there is a check mark next to "Use a proxy server for your LAN", uncheck it. Click OK. Then OK, again.
Hope this helps.
