I am running Vista on my laptop.

When I try to open IE, the screen comes up but it doesnít open. If I try to close it, I get a message saying IE not responding and all I can do is close it. When closing there is a message that Windows is looking for a solution, but no solution comes up.

I have installed Firefox. That runs ok, but every now and again it says a problem has caused the program to stop working. I close it and then open again and it will be fine for a while and then it will happen again. Sometimes straight away, sometimes as long as 30 minutes

My friend thinks this started after I clicked on a program called registry checker.

I have run my AVG scan and Spybot, but they havenít solved it.

Any sugestions gratefully received.

Have you tried either a system restore or repair install?
