Internet Explorer 6 "error has occurred etc"

  GPC 15:10 10 Mar 2009

Using IEX 6, unable get on the internet.
Every time get "Internet Explorer hs encountered a problem and will shut down".
Then the PC locks up and the only way to recover is via the taskmaster and deleting IEX from the active list.
Tried loading IEX 7, same problem.
Also, lost all printer and scanner drivers after loading IEX 7.
Restoring PC to earlier date is a temporary solution lasting a few hours... then the problem repeats.
I am using XP Professional.
How do I deal with this?

Have you done full AV and anti-malware scans?

What Anti Virus and Anti-Spyware programs do you have installed also what Firewall.While in Taskmanager what programs are using up your CPU.System idle process should be showing about 97% if nothing running that is normal.
