Im running win 7 and IE 9 and im having problems starting programs and browsers.
When i click on a browser nothing happens and i have to dbl click several times to get it to open.
Then I have to wait a long time for it to load the home page. I have 4 browsers on my computer
and the worst ones are IE 9 and firefox 4. I replaced IE 9 a few days ago and it greatly improved
but now it has reverted.
I am using the following computer.
Dell inspiron 1525 lap top.
2.5 gigs ram
1.83 ghz processor
500 gig hdd.
Any Help would be much appreciated.

May or may not help. Many browsers with a lot of add on can cause this problem. With your computer I wouldn't have a bunch of windows open either.

What is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?

Have you run full system scans with BOTH your anti virus app and MalwareBytes? If not, please do so.
