Windows 7: Change the message on start up.How do you change it?

If the Avast unisnstaller does not remove it, I'm afraid I am at a loss. It will be difficult to determine where the message is located. Short of uninstalling Norton with their removal tool, reinstalling Avast, and making sure the welcome is disabled, uninstalling avast with their removal tool, and finally reinstalling Norton. I'm assuming rajdeepak singh's suggestion did not help as well...I was unfamiliar with that. A Guy

Photo as requested in one of your replies......

This is taken with a mobile phone(cell phone):

As windows 7 boots up you will see it.

All I want to do is either delete it,edit it to say something else or just disable it.I dont need to install avast as I'm running nortons.

Thank you.

I understand you want to use Norton. Your choice if you want to close the topic, but someone may have another suggestion for you. I wasn't suggesting you keep Avast, only install it again to make sure you completely uninstall it this time. Good luck. A Guy

Avast message still on screen during boot up.

Thanks for your help.I understand what you mean.

As this problem is just a matter of words on the boot up screen it would be easier to delete,edit or disable it.Avast has been uninstalled despite then I not only tried to reinstall it but also tried the avast removal tool too.and,that didnt install either.For what its worth its just not going to change.I wont devote anymore time to avast.Even though I wanted Nortons with it, it would have been nice if avast could have been installed.Not now.If thats the effort to get nowhere its not worth it.

I tried various anti virus programs over the last 6 months and I ended up going back to nortons.It came already installed on the computer.In hindsight I should have left it that way.

If anyone knows how to go into the settings for the boot up screen please post your instructions here just in case there are others experiencing the same problems.

Thank you for all your help.

If you feel comfortable editing the registry:

1. In the start menu search box type regedit and click Enter
2. The "Registry Editor" dialog box opens
3. Click on Computer to highlight it
4. Click Ctrl+F to open a "Find" dialog box
5. Type in avast and make sure the three boxes are checked (Keys, Values, Data)
6. Click the Find Next button

The registry will be searched for avast. If found, the scan will stop and you can determine if the found item can be safely deleted by clicking the Del or Delete button on keyboard, and answering Yes to the prompt. Once deleted, click F3 top row of keyboard and search will resume. Continue deleting all references to avast. When scan is finished you could run it a second time just in case something was missed or close it out. This may get rid of the unwelcome message.

Use caution. The search could also find similar entries such as "a vast ocean" (just as an example.)

I have personally not tried it and recommend you read the instructions carefully and create system backup just in case.
Also before using the software try running "sfc /scannow" in a administrative command prompt.
Tell me if it works.

I had used the Boot Updater to change my boot screen, and chose no text, so this is a good suggestion rajdeepak singh

Make sure to print out the instructions under HOW TO RESTORE just in case. I also made complete system images before I did it. Good luck. A Guy
