After being on line and turning off Internet Explorer for any reason, I can't start I E again without shutting down and restarting my computer. This happens if I decide to get right back on or if I put the computer to sleep and come back tomorrow. This started occationally about 3 months ago to probably 90% of the time now. Thanks for any help. I'm a neewby on here and not a real computer savy kinda guy. I'm more mechanical. It's a Sony Vaio, XP

No I haven't run any thing other than the free AVG and anything that is in Windows and Yahoo. When I was running a Clean-up and preparing to defrag an error came up that it could not do a certain step because it could not find Windows Management System, or it had been moved. Should I download the malware/antivirus on this site?

The malwarebytes.org is identifying 6 "boogers" but won't delete them with the free version. Do I need to purchase. It will quarintine the "boogers" but when delete they go away on the screen. If I run the scan again they're still there.

You have to delete them then reboot straight after to enable full clearance !
