You will still need IE for windows update and other pages such as web based av or malware scans that use Active X.

Try going to "tools"/"Internet options"

Delete temporary internet files, then delete cookies, and then click on clear history.

That may speed up opening IE.

Try a few web based scans:

Kaspersky Anti-Virus Web Scanner

Panda Activescan

Trend Micro antivirus and malware scan:

Etrust Anti-virus web scanner

online trojan scans here -


Windows Security Trojanscan

Have you done the basics (I'm sure you have)

Delete cookies
Delete history
Delete Temp files
Run disk cleanup

If not, it will make a difference. Oh and by the way I was a hard core IE fan. I did not touch it for 3 weeks to force myself to use FireFox. It's very quick and pleasent. I don't mind IE but now I rather FF.
Just a note.
