When I open IE, I can go to 1 or 2 links, but then I can't open any more, even if I have closed the ones I have opened. It seems like RAM gets full and doesn't empty. I have to restart my computer to open the browser window again. Please help!

You can try a RAM Optimizer/recovery tool. It's a tiny stand alone application, one button use. Easy as pie to use, you can get it from my site (link below), good luck.

Please do the following:

To check for a virus please visit one of the following sites for a free online virus scan. Even if you a virus scanner installed, this one gives you a second opinion, and it will be up-to-date which yours might not be.

Symantec:

Trend Micro:

If you do not currently have and antivirus program install you can try AVG from www.grisoft.com – it is free.

In IE go to Tools -> Internet Options -> and delete Files and Cookies.

To check for and remove any Spyware or Adware that may be installed on your machine, download and install Adaware and Spybot. Then update each program before scanning. Fix ALL problems found by either of the programs. You may need to reboot and have the scan run at startup. Run it again to make sure all components have been removed. There is also an Immunize in feature in Spybot that should be enabled to protect against some installations of Adware/Spyware.

Ad-aware and Spybot:

If you have Kazaa, it has to go. Uninstall through ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS in Control Panel then use Kazaa Begone to remove it completely. Kazaa is full of Spyware and spreads viruses. All file-sharing programs cause a multitude of problems and promote illegal sharing of information.

Kazaa Begone:

Then post a Hijack This Log to have someone analysis it for further cleaning/recommendations.
