Hi, I recently had a virus which I have now gotten rid of with avg. However my internet explorer seems to be acting up, I have to keep doing a re-start, about once an hour because explorer just freezes up, it never did this before even if I have 20 web pages going at the same time. What do you suggest...Thanks

Thanks but to use this its telling me I need my XP disk, My computer never came with one??? its fairly new and if I want to reinstall windows I just keep clicking on F12 I think it is, and it re-installs windows that way, I do not have a disk to do it from?

Can you clarify whether it is actually Internet Explorer that is crashing (iexplore.exe) or actually Windows Explorer (explore.exe)?

Two different things, but you mentioned both in your post and both can be quite fragile and susceptible to crashes when the system files have become damaged.
