A new device shouldn't give you such problems.

It could be something you have running that is the cause, or a virus or malware that was installed when you installed something. Check that first.

If that doesn't do it, then I would consider returning it and have them exchange it for a different device if that continues.

i dont think this is due to viruses as when i was setting up the windows after unboxing it , when i connected to a wifi network after reaching the final (2-3 minutes later ) step it got hang..
 
I would try checking your WiFi settings. Also try using a different browser and see if the same occurs.

Additionally, if you added any new programs or add-ons to a browser(s), try using it without the add-ons and/or without any other programs running and see if the same occurs.
