It seems like my computer has a hard time getting to a url address - it seems to just spin forwever - I have noticed the the url address is not totally highlighted and if I click on it and highlight the whole address the computer responds a little faster (sometimes...) Is there any want to check this process out.

Your ISP may have a slow or inundated DNS server (the service that converts human friendly names to computer friendly IP addresses). This is not uncommon.

You may want to try using a third-party DNS service:

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
