Internet Explorer problems - virus?

I think I have a computer virus that is affecting my internet explorer. I was curious to know if anyone else experienced this problem and if so how they resolved it. Everytime I open my browser I get a pop up box that says "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." I have had this message appear before but it was only occasionally like if the browser froze and had to close. Now this box pops up EVERY time I open my browser and although I can still use the browser after I move that pop up box, my internet runs extremely slow. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

You should try Mozilla Firefox, it seems a lot more secure than explorer.

Kapersky

Check out the Kapersky products (I have Internet Security 6.0) for top level security. I travel a lot in countries with almost no internet controls and I remain virus, spam, worm, etc. free. I have found free downloads and those that come WITH software almost useless (although I hear good things about Apple)>
