My advice is to run Disk Cleanup and Windows Update.
You'll also be aware that using IE is not without risk as you stand in the line of fire between malware writers and Microsoft. I have no cure for this problem. Instead my advice for today is to use another browser unless you find a site that doesn't work with the other browser.
In closing, since you are an AOL user, your setup is far from stock so AOL should be able to fix your issue.
Best of luck,
