Please HELP me

My computer keeps freezing, sometimes taking 5 or 6 attempts to even switch on, or freezing loads whilst using.
To make matters worse I (in a futile attempt to fix the problem), uninstalled Internet explorer and (although can log on) can no longer access loads of stuff, including; My Computer, Recycle bin.
I am scared to remove anything as I have no discs to replace.

Sometimes I also get this sort of message..."caused a overflow error in module WINMX.EXE at 0167:0040372e.

Has anyone any ideas before I shell out cash to a shop to fix.

1. Bad idea to post your (stupid) e-mail address

2. What version of Windows?

lets forget about giving it to a shop, for now,do you have a recovery disk? as for IE you can put that back in, most cover disks have it on....

I know it's probably not the best idea but my email adress has been banned from here, so have to log in as my son, and don't normally go into his emails.....

Anyway I am running windows 98

No Recovery discs...Nothing...Was just given the PC

The peny had not dropped when you first posted this but it is a "file sharing" program that you ought to remove together with the associated parasites. For the latter click here
