    My advice would be to download Firefox and import your favorites into it and just not bother with IE.

    you could go into your C:\Documents and Settings\your name here\Favorites directory and open the links from there and rebookmark them, etc.

    check your machine for spyware
    use adaware and spybot ,search and destroy

    firefox is better for security and almost crash proof
