You could do one of two things.

1) Try another browser such as Firefox from www.mozilla.com

2)Go into Internet Options->Connections Tab and remove anything that is in the "dial-up and virtual vpn" box. Next go into LAN Settings and un-check anything that is checked. Click OK. Next, click on "Setup" beside "setup internet connection". Select the following options in the wizard, "Connect to the Internet", "Set up the connection manually", "Connect using a broadband connection that is always on" and then click Finish.

Let me know if either of those will work for you.
