Malwarebytes shouldn't be an issue, not sure about the other USB security program.

You could try disabling both to see if the Avast uninstaller will download/run

OK, you need to update your XP to SP3, else Avast won't run.

The latest versions need SP3.

No need for an older version, just update your XP.

Fine. I will have my new laptop anyways on Monday ^.^ (Dell Inspiron i5559)

Thanks for your support! I'll use AVG for now.

BTW, my laptop lag spikes on SP3 so that's why I'm using SP2

Nvrmd, I think my system doesn't support any existing anti virus anymore :C but I will still be an AVAST Supporter! :D

Guess I will have to stick with MBAM. I have read that Avast and AVG will team so I guess AVAST's future will be the best! More likely to be the best free anti virus as of 2016! :D
