Every time i try to turn on Internet Explorer It freezes up my PC for about 10 minutes then closes and asks me if i want to send an error report (which, if sent will cause IE to open again and the whole cycle to restart again, lol)
When IE is opened IE starts off using the normal ammount of Ram but then keeps usin up more and more and more until it's using about 3 gigs of RAM; and then the error report window comes on. My virus scan didn't fix this and neither did my spyware remover. I tried reinstalling IE, but the same problem persists. I cannot delete IE completely because every time i delete IExplore.exe it just appears again in about 15 secs (and so do all the other IE files). This is really annoying because every time i click a link from my PC it freezes for 10 minutes and i get no result. I would appreciate somehelp with this.
