Have you tried running disk cleanup and also deleting all temp files in IE if you use that by going to tools, internet options, delete history etc from the IE toolbar.

if using I/E try XpPro7 add-on.Make sure ad-blocker is ticked and mini download manager is unticked.See if that helps.

I should add that once you change anything on it you have to restart Internet Explorer for it to take effect.

Use System Restore to get back to a time when the computer was OK.
