High PID - IE Crashes

Here's my current problem:
Internet Explorer opens fine. I can navigate to www.google.com, but after clicking on a link, IE maxes out my CPU and freezes itself. After I alt+ctrl+del it, my PID goes way up for all aplications ran after that. Right now, my PID for taskmgr.exe is 477984 and my PID for firefox.exe is 456812. Which brings me to my next point, Firefox seems to be working fine for me. AOL's browser crashes though.
At first I thought it was spyware, so I ran AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy, both of which had the most current updates. I emptied out the spyware, restarted my computer and was still having the same problem. So the next thing I did was run AVG, which had just been downloaded and updated. It found 4 trojans. One dialer and three downloaders. So I deleted these files and restarted the computer once again. I still am having the same issue, could somebody please help me get my IE working? Thank you for your time.
