FRST says it executed the fix, but my system still boots to a blank black screen with a pointer.

Same thing in safe mode.  It still hangs at aswrvrt.sys.

Still black screen with pointer.  I ran another scan, here's the log:

The black screen is after the Windows boot Logo ?
If so, did you let the PC sit there for awhile ?

This fixlist will now disable Avast/Adaware/McAfee

Download the attached fixlist.txt to the same location as FRST
Run FRST from the recovery console and press fix
Now try a normal boot

It's after the boot.  I let it sit for about 2 hours, it'll go to screen saver but when I move the mouse, back to black.  I'll try the new fix and report back. Thanks.

No luck.  When it boots I see Microsoft Copyright on a black screen with a segmented green progress bar moving (like normal), I get a message that says lstdelete missing skipping autocheck then black screen with pointer.  Thanks again for your continued help.

BootExecute: autocheck autochk * autocheck lsdelete
This is part of adaware antivirus


I will remove that entry now and see if it helps

Download the attached fixlist.txt to the same location as FRST
Run FRST from the recovery console and press fix
Now try a normal boot

Do you have the same problem in safe mode ?

Yes.  When I try to boot in safe mode, it hangs on crcdisk (not sure if that matters), then boots to the black screen, with a low res pointer.

May be long shot but can you select SAFE MODE WITH COMMAND PROMPT and see what happens ?
