I have the following problem. When I get on-line, and visit one or two websites, my computer slows down and even locks up. My son told me to go to my task manager and look for multiple iexplore.exe's. Sure enough there were several with tons of memory useage, which evidently slows or locks up things. When I delete these iexplore.exe 's, things go back to normal.

Do you have a clue as to what is going on and how can I fix it?.....Note: All I know about computers is how to use them and I have no great technical knowledge.

Thanking you in advance for any help you might be able to give me.

It shows up when I start my computer and is taking up a very large amount of memory.It's use very well because computer works fast and well using IE after start-up but then slows as surfing and printing progresses.
