IE stops working randomly.

I have a Dell inspiron 1525, 2.00GHz duo core CPU, 2.00Gb RAM, Windows vista home premium.
Ive had the laptop since october last year, and until a few months ago everything was fine with it.
But recently everytime I turn it on, from anywhere between 20minutes to several hours afterwards my Internet explorer will start getting slower and slower until it eventually stops loading pages altogether. While this is happening everything else which uses the internet on the laptop works fine i.e. messenger, spotify and I have full local and internet access. We are pretty sure this is not a problem with the router, we have several laptops using the same Belkin Wireless G-router and none of the others have a problem. The problem rectifies itself after a restart, but having to do around 5 to 10 restarts a day is becoming annoying.
Any suggestions?

If it helps, I have IE 8 and have already preformed several virus scans using malwarebytes and AVG and found nothing.
