now yahoo is blank
What do you mean? Can't see the yahoo website?

system restore is blank
You mean you can't enable/disable system restore?
Do you mean system restore points are gone?

and it keeps saying JAVA error
When do you get this error?
What is the exact error?

What OS are you using?
What exact version of Avast?
What was the reason to uninstall/reinstall Avast in the first place?

Hit F8 during the boot process and you will get choice of boot options such as Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, etc..

Yes, that is it. Press F8 right after the bios status screen and before windows starts to load.

Try to remove/reinstall the Yahoo Messenger and let us know what happens.

Visit http://java.sun.com and install the JVM, let's see if that helps.
