Please let us know what version of IE you are using and what version of Windows you are using. There are a number of things you can do here--you can delete your temporary internet files, do a cleanup of your hard drive, run scandisk and defrag, run system file checker to check for corrupted files, and run the IE repair tool. The Windows update site can also be used to check for updates and patches, although I personally am not a huge fan, as I've had problems with their patches. Also, if you are using AV software, make sure it is up to date and run a thorough system scan. Sometimes simple maintenance can solve these things. Reformatting is a major pain, not something you should have to do for a problem with the browser (just the opinion of a non techie, recently formatted person <g>).
