Laptop running slowly

My laptop, where I usually post from, is running slowly since last night. So slowly in fact that even opening up a KF page is nigh on impossible. Most requests for anything other than the google homepage end up as IE can't display the webpage.

I've tried:
* switching the router on/off
* rebooting
* uninstalling the latest Window's update from Friday using system restore
* uninstalling Norton

MSN isn't working on the laptop at all. The basic connectivity test has worked though.

Suggestions on a postcard?

System restore?

Edit-you've already done that...

If you are on broadband check the speed of your connection.
