First thing you can try is running LavaSoft's Ad-Aware (or similar product) to see if you have been affected by adware.
Next, try upgrading IE. You may have corrupt files in IE and upgrading to the latest version can fix that.
Agreed 100%. FF is a workaround for 95% of people on here becasue they cant fix a problem
You are just fine running IE. They have holes and long as hackers and exploiting them, if there were no hackers, there be no holes, simple as that. FF is just a work-around for most people since presently, hackers target IE since it the most popular, but now they are starting to turn on FF. People that use IE and have problems with it that dont know how to fix it, use FF. If you take care of your system, IE will be just fine. Its just like the Camry, its the most stolen car in the US, atleast it was, so I guess that make the Corolla more safe to but just because theifs like to steal Camry's....
