Hi,
Looks like an operating system jam in normal boot mode. Cure Boot computer in safe mode by hitting F8 as the computer is starting. Remove avast in safe mode & reboot normally. Did you have avg on your computer before avast? You need to remove AVG compleaty by using avg removal tool before using avast! & try again.

You will need a XP Operating system CD Rom disk to repair windows sounds like major curruption of the windows files. Boot from cd rom & repair windows or if that fails format and re install.
