I am having trouble with my web browsers. They keep hanging whenever I try to navigate through certain sites, especially ones related to Wayne State University. It first started happening there and has occurred several times in other websites, and now it happens when running skype. The page freezes and displays (Not Responding) at the top of the browser. I have Internet Explorer version 7.0.600 and Firefox and experience the problems through both.

I have tried using them in safe modes but the problem still occurs.

It first started happening several weeks ago. I hadnt downloaded any programs immediately previous to the problems.

Is this a virus issue? Spyware?
Do I need to bring the computer in?

Its a 3 month old Toshiba satellite A205. Intel 2 Duo CPU. T5450 @1.66 GHz. 1.99 GBs memory. 2038 MB (RAM). 32-bit processing.

Thank you for any input
