What Operating System are you running and if Windows, which version?
What are your computer's specifications, hardware, connection, etc...?
What version on MSIE are you currently using?
Did you install anything new lately?
If it is software related, which it sounds to be, as mentioned by the other posts you can always go around the problem by using a Mozilla substitute, you can get that at the following sites...
There are many people that prefer Mozilla to MSIE any way but I hate just switching programs because I always know in the back of my mind that there is still something wrong in there somewhere... If it is software related and using another browser solves the problem I would still fix the problem...
To me it does sound like a spybot, trojan or foistware... there are many foistware programs that will load multiple files into your computers hard drive and registry based on agreed terms in the EULA of another installed program... I just ran across one that was not found by either spybot- search and destroy or adaware...
