Found website, waiting for reply.

Hi there. I am just wondering about a problem I've been getting for the past couple of weeks. Basically, every so often, I could be on the internet (Internet Explorer and Vista) and click to go to a link or another page or whatever, but nothing happens. Other than the icon in the tab just going round and round, and the green progress bar not filling up at all. So I refresh, nothing happens. So I close the program and re open, the home page doesn't load, and at the bottom says "Page found, waiting for reply". And I leave it for a while and still nothing happens. I have to turn my Laptop off (sometimes it won't shut down, so I have to just switch off, and reboot.
It has only done this for the last few weeks, and the internet IS connected as Windows Messenger still connects and works, and my mobile connects via the wireless connection. I have recently uninstalled MBAM and adaware and all the other malware scanner things people have told me to install. Now I only have Spybot, Zonealarm firewall, and Avast antivirus. Plus CCleaner and spyware blaster. But they were only added last week. I went on HiJack this, as I thought I had big problems with some adware things via on line scans like Housecall. But nothing else picked up on. They told be to download a lot of things. I'm not downloading anything else coz they don't really work in my opinion. But something has been altered or stops my computer's web browser running correctly.
Sorry for the essay!!! Oh dear. Any hints or ideas I could try, with out downloading the entire antispy ware scanner collection? lol.
