Are you on broadband or dialup? Is your computer connected to a LAN (router and\or switch)? Have you recently started using scanning software like AVG email scanner, SpywareGuard, or Spybot?

The bottom bar of the internet explorer window shows finding site bbc.co.uk and then the loading bar comes up and it takes ages for it to fully load up.
