Alright for sure. Thanks for the help man. Although I think I deleted the whole Entire AVG folder because I kept on researching and it told me to get rid of the folder if you have that error

At C:\Windows\System32, type in the following and press Enter: dir drivers

You will get a long string of stuff, which are the contents of the Drivers directory.

Go down the list, and see if you can find any entries that start with avgxxx.sys (xxx = anything, e.g. avgldx86.sys, avgtdix.sys, etc.) They should be at the top of the list.

Take note of them, and post back on what they are.
Results:
All these used to be sys but I changed the extension because I read somewhere that they have to be changed in order for windows to boot.

avgidsdrivera.bak
avgidsha.bak
avgldx64
avgloga.bak
avgmfx64.bak
avgrkx64.bak
avgdia.bak
avgtpx64

Go back to the same Command Prompt

Type: cd "c:\program files"
At C:\Program Files, type: dir

You will get another list. Is the Directory for AVG there?

Now type in: cd "c:\program files (x86)"
At c:\program files (x86), type: dir

Another list. Is there a Directory for AVG there also?


Need to go out for a while. Will be back in about an hour.

The AVG files are already renamed. Let's forget about AVG for now.

What is the problem you are having to begin with?
Will the laptop not boot at all?

What HP Model is the laptop?

Do you get a message or anything on the screen when you try to boot?

I am not sure what kind of model it is and yes Windows 7 won't start up. I tried all the methods . Would you like to see the blue screen of death error? . Maybe that will help a lot.
