When i try to login, i am justing hanging at a white screen. The URL in the browser is, http://myintranetsite.com/system/index.php?/cp/login/authenticate

It stays at that url and never lets me get logged in. After quite some time it times out and i get a Fatal Error.

Maximum execution time of 300 seconds exceeded in c:\path...\root\system\expressionengine\libraries\El_pings.php on line 244

FYI, I am running the most up to date version of EE2 on a Windows Server

This is the library file that EE uses to phone home. It most likely means your installation can't phone home to Ellis Labs correctly. Your example URL ... http://myintranetsite.com make it sound like an internal tool, and not a public facing site. Is the network this site is on connected to the internet?
