  1. Best answer
    virus? is both 7 and xp on the same broadband connection? have you tried using different internet browsers?
  2. What antivirus and/or firewall software is on the windows 7 PC?

    Try disabling the AV and/or firewall, and see if that solves the problem. If it does, you should find better software.
  3. Clear the Internet cache/Temporary Internet File? In IE, click on Tools, Internet Options, and Delete under Browsing History. IF you have a broadband connection, check the "Empty Temporary Internet files when browser is closed" box under the Advanced tab, under Security options.

    How many programs running in the background, or on startup? Run "msconfig" to check. Careful, althought it's part of Windows, you can delete too many things, and then OS won't boot. (I take no responsibility) Don't delete anything from Microsoft on boot up is a safe bet.
