OK I am new to this. No I did not use the link you provided at first, I used the add/remove programs.
Next, I used the link you provided to remove AVG and the computer boots up normally. Seems all good.
I have installed Microsoft Security Essentials and are updating it now
The computer seems to be running normally again.
If anything changes I will post back on this thread.
I do not know how to THANK you enough. YOU ARE THE GREATEST!!!!
