Big mistake a company that takes its name. Although it is a serious problem in the short term consequences remain because no one could have expected from the blue screen programs like Avast, at least not in 2017 years

2 options:
1. Wait or,
2. Boot into Safe Mode (hit F8 Key repeatedly while booting) Use System Restore to restore to a point before the last VPS update.

I think it's partly system restore that has got the laptop into the mess it's in.

Unfortunately not.
If nothing else works and there isn't a backup, the only other option is to use the manufacturers
restore option. The bad thing is that it will restore your computer to it's purchase installation.
You'll need to re-install all of the programs, update the OS and the programs and your personal data will be lost
unless you have that backed up someplace in the cloud ?
A service tech could possible access the HD and retrieve your personal information before restoring it to the factory reset.

And all because of Avast software, thanks Avast, I won't be using your crappy software ever again!

Hope this will get you to start doing regular image backups to an external HD.
Remember that HD's don't last for ever. Sooner or later it will fail. Being prepared for a disaster always needs to happen
before the disaster.  This time the system failure was do to a software glitch but there are many things that can cause it.

About this BSOD, a little inside information we got from Avast :

The problem was with program code released with the VPS 170320-0 virus definition update.
All VPS updates go through levels of automated tests, but this one slipped through because the faulty code kicked in after longer period of time.

So no excuse, but a different and/or difficult scenario to test imo.

Congrats AVAST! Ever since Win 7 was released no other software at my hand managed to crash it with a bluescreen! That really gives me confidence installing the yet purchased AfB Version for our application server.

Good for you, that your marketing department has my email address and knows, how to use it. Sad enough, that your support doesn´t see the necessity to send out a warning, before I and others spend a days work to get systems up and running again.

Maybe you should consider spending less time in developing useless gismos and gadgets like "safe price" and stuff, that noone wants to see at least in a paid software product and get´s installed by default, if not unticked upfront. Meanwhile I will consider the future renewals of our 60+ licenses maybe being a perfect moment to switch products...

Best regards
