Okay. I hope we get that straightened out for you.

HijackThis: http://go.trendmicro.com/free-tools/hijackthis/HijackThis.exe

Download and save to C:\Hijack (preferably create that folder prior to download)

Run it.

Click on "Do a system scan and save a logfile".

Post logfile here.

1.Try Crapcleaner and do reg scan and clean scan to remove all remains of AVG,
2.Or edit the registry, Search using F3, type AVG and del all the keys ref to AVG and try avast again.
3 Run Malware bytes free anti spyware (mbam) & check for spywares or use spybot search & destroy.
4 if all this fails try repair of windows try and go to your earliest restore point & reboot or try and repair windows with the XP CD rom. If that fails re-format & install windows easy way to cure this depending what files you have on the hard drive, save all your important data before formatting!.

I would not recommend a restore... lot of troubles with avast and restoring the system.  8)
This is an issue that must be fixed soon.

also look if there's a LMHOSTS file on your machine (other than lmhosts.sam) if lmhosts is activated in the network tcp/ip preferences (under WINS)

I am unable to download anything, including the hijack software.  Yesterday, for some reason I was able to download long enuf to get Spybot.  Ran that, found problems- deleted them, still nothing.  I do not have any "LMHosts" present.  I tried to uninstall Avast, but that failed- couldn't uninstall.  I am not computer literate enough to know how to reformat or restore.  I guess I'll have to get Computer Geeks or something unless anyone else has an idea.
