Use the Windows recovery console and delete (or rather rename) either avast's or Norton's drivers.

avast's are \windows\system32\drivers\aswmon2.sys and  \windows\system32\drivers\aavmker4.sys.

After you boot to Windows, put back the drivers and uninstall either avast or Norton - completely.
If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.

What do you mean would not boot?
It's either incapable of working because of a hardware failure - then we can't help you and the only thing you can do is go buy a new puter (or the failing part) or it IS working and then it will boot, either from the WinXP install CD and will let you access the recovery console.

yes it booted from cd but the cd did not see the old OS so i could not do a repair from recovery console because it never asked . it just wanted to know where i would like to install xp pro
