[help] Avast 8 Free + Windows 8 = Bad Idea
« on: May 02, 2013, 10:56:50 PM »
Hi everybody.

My lenovo-c200 all-in-one dekstop computer running as follow

Intel Atom, D525
2 GB, DDR3-SDRAM
500 GB, 5400 RPM
Windows 8 Pro
It's experiencing a really bad issue, here I explain, I installed Avast 8 Free, after 30 minutes avast ask me to install a Adobe Air update and I did, I kept working without restarting the computer after avast 8 free was installed, 5 hours later the computer was restarted , everything seemed normal until a black screen appeared , so I restarted again and vooala, my computer was stocked into a "Log In  looping screen" so I proceed  to boot from a recovery USB but it seems like something it's blocking my keyboard, I can't use nor F12 to select o boot device  or F1 to access into the BIOS.

Any ideas what could be causing this?

BTW Here the video of the screen

Thanks.

hey are you able to boot in safemode?
if so try to do a clean installation of avast.
did you deactivate MSE before installation avast?
