What errors are you getting ? Have you tried disabling the IE Add-ons ?

In answer to your main question, yes you can reinstall IE. You just need to download the installer from Microsoft and you are away.

i'd make sure you gotten rid of the virus before you reinstall anything. if you're infected you might just reinfect anything else you download. you might also consider a fresh system restore too.

best way by far after infection, did you format before re-installation? the trouble with some viruses is that the anti-virus software will not 'see' it if it has copied itself into the hidden restore folder so when you do system restore the virus is still present. (i know this as i do computer maintenance as a job and come across this frequently)
