@frankbustos,

What AV are you running on this system?

Is there any add-ons in IE, try running IE without addins and check if that improves the performance?
You can open Internet Explorer without add-ons in 2 ways.

1. One way to open is to navigate to start menu-> All Programs-> Accessories-> System Tools-> Internet Explorer (no Add-ons). This opens up IE without ActiveX controls and browser extensions.

2. Second way is Win + R key which opens Run command, type iexplore –extoff and this will open up IE8 without add-ons.

Further run full system scan with MalwareBytes and let us know.
