Glad you fixed although you don't mention whether you've successfully reinstalled AVAST yet.

I was just about to post as I didn't understand the 'help' being given here. The link to the MS download was for XP Service packs 3 not a repair or reinstall disc.

If you have the original install disc either OEM or retail there should be a repair option provided. Whether this was the right course of action in this case (apparently not) I had no idea so this 'how to...' link was provided FYI only:-

http://www.wikihow.com/Do-a-Windows-XP-%22Repair-Install%22
Well, I was really dumb and didn't notice the "Repair Windows" text at the bottom-left of the reinstall window when I used the reinstall CD-ROM that I had.

I used the repair windows link on the CD-ROM to restore the system to a past checkpoint and uninstall Avast from there.

I will not be reinstalling Avast to that system so I will not be able to comment whether or not it would be successful or not.

Apparently the problem isn't gone. Actually, it's back now. I can't update run Windows Update without the problem returning. Can any read into my FRST.txt and tell me how to proceed?

Apparently the fault is NOT with Avast since your problem is still present.
MS no longer supports XP and mo longer offers updates for that OS.
The only way to still receive updates through MS is to install a NON MS version called
Windows Unofficial Service Pack 4. More information at:

Avast IS actually still present on the system since I had to do a system restore. I'm back to where I started at the beginning of this thread. The problem is STILL with aswRvrt.sys.

Any chance at a fixlist.txt?

He's the closest to a superhero we have, but somehow I can't picture him in stretch leotards and a cape. ;D

Leotards and Cape are a distinction I hold :) :) :)

OK I will need a fresh FRST log as you have made changes.  Are you still able to achieve safe mode but not normal mode

Try restarting and then using "use last known good configuration."

My Father has a system running XP that Avast will not allow to boot up as well, but when the Avast service is disabled, the system boots just fine!
