Slowness can be due to anything: slow connection, plugins, spyware etc.

To reinstall, open c:\windows\inf folder, find ie.inf, right click and select Install.

Scan for malware and viruses on the system first.

Then follow the steps listed in Microsoft Technical Article 318378:

The most straightforward way to repair I.E. is to open Control Panel, open Add/Remove programs, double click the I.E. entry and select Repair from the options available.

Reinstallation is the same. Or you can reinstall from a disk, then visit WindowsUpdate which will update your copy of I.E. to the latest version.

Good luck
