Avast creates a restore point right before it installs. You need to get toget to that option for system restore, then you can reset your computer to that point. But i dont know how to do that on a hp machine.

Power off, restart holding down the "Shift " key and tapping fast on F8.

Did you uninstall your previous used / factory installed AV before installing avast?
Did you run the vendors removal tool to clear any leftover files that may conflict?    http://www.avast.com/en-eu/faq.php?article=AVKB11#artTitle

Hp machines usually comes preinstalled with Norton....
