Programs Keep Crashing

For the past few days numerous programs are crashing or are not loading at all. I opened Norton Anti-Virus and clicked scan but nothing happened.

I read online that there was a virus going around called IPStack that crashes programs and closes regedit. I opened regedit and it closed after about a second. I read that deleting IPStack from the registry would fix the problem, so I booted in safe mode and opened regedit but I could not find IPStack.exe.

I'm completely baffled by this and would greatly appreciate some help.

My OS is Microsoft XP SP2, running on a Packard Bell laptop.
