  1. Hi guys,

    I recently installed "Avast Home Edition" downloaded from Cnet to check my computer for any virus', etc. Once installed, it asked me to restart my computer, and when it came to the Windows XP loading screen (black screen with windows xp logo and blue movement loading bar), it froze and wouldn't budge. I have restart and switched off my computer numerous times (safe and normal modes) with the same result happeneing. The screen just freezes at the XP page after the blue loading bar moves for about 10 seconds.

    Does anyone know anything that i would be able to try? Anyone had this same situation happen to them? Its driving me nuts ad i need to access my computer... :'(

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
