Windows 7: Remove viruses and now windows won't boot regular or in safe mode

Remove viruses and now windows won't boot regular or in safe mode

Have a laptop here that was virus infected. AVG pro removed 157 viruses including trojans. Now windows crashes after windows 7 icon. Restore last setting just runs and runs with no completion. Safe mode gets only so far in loading drivers and then reboots (suspiciously stops at the AVG driver, hangs and reboots). There is no restore disks for this laptop. Is there a way to stop certain drivers from loading during safe mode? Any help or guidance is appreciated.

Hi.


157 virus? It's seem that avg is not working well or you make something wrong.


Try these steps,in this order,


Advanced Boot Options


System Restore


Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup


Then if its possible remove avg and use this Good and Free system security combination.

I was able to restore back to an earlier date and found it was not the virus clean up that was causing the problem but the antivirus program itself. The computer had no antivirus program on it which is why they had so many problems. AVG installed and cleaned things up but when you would reboot it would hang up loading the AVG drivers and than kept rebooting. I restored it again and used a different antivirus program and everything went flawlessly and the computer is going fine now.

I recently came home to my computer off and when I went to turn it back on, it started up with a black screen after the windows logo with just the cursor available. Things like ctrl-alt-delete did nothing so I tried booting up in safe mode which ended up with same black screen and cursor. I then...

Windows crashed. Now can't boot, even in repair mode or safe mode.
Let me open by saying I'm too old to understand most of the jargon and directions found in a technical forum like this. I've been trying to fix this myself for about two weeks, and have made so many changes, I've probably made a complete hash of it. The latest thing I did was to attempt a...

This is baffling me to no end. I can boot up fine in safe mode, and with networking. But I still manage to get a BSOD not too long into the session. I managed to capture a video of it and in the Technical information of the blue screen it said "STOP: 0X0000007E (0XC0000005, 0X81CB6169,...
