You can try to back to 4.8 or try 6.0 beta
danny96  Going back to 4.8 is just plain stupid and version 6 is a beta and not for the user who does not want potential problem's so it is best and simplest for the op to follow the advice i have given without your interaction thankyou  ::)

goto avast settings -- troubleshooting and enable : load avast after other services.. this is recommended because, even if avast hangs/freezes or watever, your windows wil be working fine , and allow u to repair avast, reinstall . . .

Ho-chi-minh you need to read the whole thread before posting because your post here has nothing to do with the op's issue's.
There seem's to be a compatability problem with the BhS on the op's system and im waiting for them to reply back as to whether the solution i supplied has worked.

I was having the same problem with Vista, I took vista off my laptop and installed windows 7 ultimate and did a clean install I then installed the free version of avast. 2 days later, when starting up my laptop, the same problem occured, i could sign on to windows, but at that point the screen goes black with only the mouse curser, which I can move around but nothing more.  I was able to get a window up with hitting the shift key a few times and pulled up the control pannel, and was able to do a restore before avast and it booted up perfect.  So, what now? I love avast but for some reason the new version is giving me problems.  Any ideas?  Any suggestions on virus protection programs

thank you
