I find it absurd that avast internet security is the only suite after uninstalling it does not make it possible to connect to internet.the technicians should do something! but even respond!

You can go with a workaround to do a system restore on boot to previous state by this;

http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/system-restore-offline-xp-erd-mdop/

Otherwise i dont see other options du the xp have no restore on (bootable-) original disk as vista or later, i just create a account to help you after seeing your struggling, dont know if you can manage this issue from here.

good luck...

You have a neigbour or friend so can prepare the disk in the link above by using their pc needed for it.

Copy and paste this code in windows notepad.

@Echo off
pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
popd
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
cls
echo Script finished.
pause
del %0


In Notepad, click File and then Save. Type reset.bat for the file name. Change Save as Type to All Files, and then save the file to your desktop. After the file is saved, double-click on the file to open it. Once it's finished running, restart your computer. Check to see if your Internet connection is restored.

The original poster has the same problem as me.

I have a continuous loop at log on that prevents any access to Windows, any programmes or utilities.

For some reason I can't access safe mode or the BIOS

I've tried to use Acronis to restore but the disc won't load.

Any ideas?

the boot disk,if not physically damaged,must load.have you create an Acronis boot cd previously?

My computer wouldn't boot, but I was able to enter safe mode and uninstall from within safe mode normally, without using the special Avast uninstall utility.  I certainly won't be ever installing Avast again.. This is beyond unacceptable.

Avast wont eat system files  :o

If your PC got infected with a virus means its your fault probably because you didnt be self cautious enough...no antivirus program has 100% detection because everyday 10000+ or even more than those many viruses come out.  ::)
