You could try another web browser such as opera to see if that works. Have you downloaded all the updates for IE?

got opera and seems to have solved the problem. just cannot delete IE now.

Which version of IE? Help > About Internet Explorer if you don't know.

I do not think that Windows will allow you to delete IE.

if on ie7 seven you can reset to original state,
tools>internet options>reset
download ie7 pro click here
you can then set it block pops/ad blocker etc,it will also automatically recover from crashes.

Depending on what version of IE:

If IE7 and not a new machine,you should be able to roll back to IE6.

If IE6 try this fix click here

Another browser for you and in my opinion,the best out there
Firefox click here
