You say slow IE and other programs, assuming the system is slow, check for virus and spyware, clean up your temporary internet files/folders, run a defragmenter on your HD. When you browse or use say OE, temporary files are created in the background which may get heavily fragmented and every time these applications are used, they are slow. Set a good automatic defragmenter to keep fragmentation levels under check.
