Computer help to fix IE 6.0

Someone using my PC (the boy) has downloaded some kind of popup and advertising software that has imbedded itself into IE 6.0 on my computer as a plug-in. There was nothing on the Add/Remove list to uninstall it, and after three days I finally found some executables in the Windows directory that when deleted would stop loading in the advertisements. But something is still executing in the IE software itself, and it sometimes gives we a memory exception in IE. I want to uninstall IE and reinstall it, but I've been told you can't. Any suggestions? Ps, the popup blockers won't stop it. Ive already tried.

    Go to the microsoft website and get the patch that came out a couple weeks ago.

    I'm just getting back online after having an Explorer related prob. Your probs sound sickeningly familiar. I got some kind of spyware that caused repeated invalid page faults in a module "STOOLBAR.DLL". Traced that to some spyware, found the related program and removed it. But doing so completely disabled Explorer, and I ultimately did a complete reformat. Major hassle. Hope someone has better news for you.
