well i got into safe mode and the whole screen filled up with something that says....
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\windows\system32\drivers\
It's normal, after that a black screen comes up, then the mouse and then the logon screen at 640x480 of resolution.

Well, You're in alot of trouble...  :(
Why Do I Love avast!?

avast Anti-Virus I think is the only anti-virus I can trust. I love avast because their support is magnificent. Especially the forums.

I would like awil to make their icons in the system tray more glossy though.

At this time, I really suggest you install Windows over your 'old' installation.
You won't lose your programs and settings neither your data.
Install Windows from the CDRom. Just choose 'Repair' installation of Windows and install 'over' the old installation.
This is called overinstallation and it can solve the problem and you won't lose your programs, settings, data, files, etc.
