Windows 7: After using avg pctuneup 2014 and boot animation changer, unable to bt

16 Nov 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
After using avg pctuneup 2014 and boot animation changer, unable to bt

Well firstly I must say that my laptop is dual-booted. My laptop boots in this order. BIOS, GRUB, OS

Running Ubuntu works perfectly, Windows used to work too.

The other day I ran a few updates, fixed a few drivers with slimdriver, then used a boot animation changer to change my boot theme, afterwards i used avg pctuneup 2014 and told it to defragment the registry on the next boot.

The next boot It loaded the bios, grub, then it gave me a black screen, i restarted and held f8. I tried safemode with networking, it crashed halfway through and my computer restarted, now i cannot even get to the f8 option. I have tried the recovery disk and it cant help me. I can access my windows files from Ubuntu if there is any manual way to fix it. I would not like to install windows again if preferable because it just took me 2 weeks or so to set everything up because last time it had completely different issues that required me having to wipe and reinstall the windows partition. When the screen is black the caps lock button flashes in a series of 1. This apparently means a corrupted cpu according to hp but seeing as my computer runs ubuntu perfectly, this error appears meaningless I am currently thinking that if its the boot animation changer, I could possibly replace or revert the files with the backup files but do not know the location. Does anyone have ideas on how to fix this?

AVG is buggy bloatware that no one here recommends, nor has anyone since they bloated up 7-8 years ago.

To use any optimizing suite on Windows 7 is unneeded and risky. Windows 7 is already as lean as an OS can be. The tools and methods which work best are detailed in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

I would reset my BIOS to defaults, unplug all other HD's and peripherals, wipe the HD with Diskpart Clean Command then follow those same steps to get, and this time keep, a perfect install.
