Hello Misty and welcome to BC.

What is your operating system? Have you done a scandisk or defrag lately? Try Ccleaner to clean up the junk files on your computer, but avoid the Issues area as it is a registry cleaner and should only be used to fix specific issues.

There is a way to attempt an repair on Internet Explorer

Start > Settings > Control panel > Add/Remove programs

Click to highlight > Microsoft Internet Explorer 6

Click on > Add/Remove...

A dialog box will open.

Now tick on the radio button choice of:

Repair Internet Explorer

Follow the prompts.

I think that there is a re-start involved when finished.

Make sure that you choose the Repair option.
