hi, well i get the safe modemenu, but when i select safe mode it gets into a loop, i get a mouse cursor for a while, and then it reboots. Startup repair my computer does not find any issues. Any other ideas?

Download this fixlist.txt as before, run it and let me know if that helps

nice essex, it helped, i am back in for now. I got straigh into the avast uninstaller, and after that i dont see it anymore.

I don't really dare restart the computer now, afraid i might not get back in!

What can i do to see if all is ok?

I do get a message from "intel matrix storage console", stating that s.m.a.r.t. is reporting a hard dsik problem. Maybe that is at the heart of this problem, or could all the tweaking, restarting, cold power offs have caused that?

tia, Moosey

No that is a timely warning that the hard drive is failing I think that it may have been the initial cause of the problem.   In your place I would heed that warning and replace the hard drive soon

Download the attached fixlist .txt to the same location as FRST
Run FRST as before and press fix
On completion reboot to normal windows

Avast will need to be re-installed

Download the correct version of Avast 
Avast Free
Avast Pro
Avast Internet Security
Avast Premier

Sorry about the hard drive going, but at least you had early warning

I have Windows Vista Home Premium 32-Bit and it will not start up past the windows loading screen. When I try to boot into safemode it stops at \Windows\System32\Drivers\aswRvrt.sys. Please help.
