The problem might be because u only use the windows firewall. It only complains about stuff, and keeps complaining even if u turn it off. Says something of a security risk
Honestly, windows firewall is so bad, so I wouldn't wonder if there would be some viruses/hackers messing with ur pc. This explains it working just after a reformat, when they are gone, but slows down and stops working because they get back in.
It might also be some other things, but this is possible.
