Windows won't start even in safe mode, from a Google search it seems like an Avast update?

    Hi

    In the end I installed Windows 7 Home Premium again, I attached the disk to a PC first and backed up all the data but Windows placed it in a .old directory anyway.

    The laptop is now working fine I am pretty sure it was an Avast update as that's the only thing that has changed in the last week or so.

    I know its not really an answer but it was the quickest solution for me.

    Cheers
    Chris
