Internet Explorer Causing System Slowdown/Memory Ballooning

Hewlett Packard m9600t
Intel Core i7 940 @ 2.93 GHZ
Windows Vista 64-bit Home
4 GB RAM
768 MB NvIdia Geforce 9600 GS
Internet Explorer 7 (I don't like 8)
After finding out that it is likely IE that is the culprit after the discussion found here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/330380/blue-screen-error-while-surfing-internet-a-few-days-ago/ I've come to make a new topic here to see if you fine folks can help me get IE back in working order.
Basically, the problem is this: After browsing around with IE for even a short period of time, IE's memory balloons and other programs, specifically Yahoo Messenger, show a slow down. Specifically with YIM, when I start typing in text and press enter (not when I click on enter in the IM screen) there is a marked amount of lag in the time it takes for the text to disappear and appear in the window, and eventually it gets to the point where when I am typing, the text lags in showing up as I type.
This even lead to a BSOD possibly when I was really straining the browser.
Any idea what I can do to fix it?
