Windows 7: Windows will not start from any boot option

Windows 7 Ultima 32bit

it looks like your PC crashed by AVG update. The technical fix is to rename all files in the \Windows\System32\Drivers folder that begin with "avg" to something else.

Use a free rescue CD to rename the AVG files

AVG offer a rescue CD that can do this as it includes Midnight Commander as a file management tool. Download it from here

Why is anyone still running AVG? There's never been a positive mention of it here since before Win7 release. It's been 6-8 years since it devolved to bloated crapware and never returned.

Run Microsoft Security Essentials with the Win7 Firewall kept updated automatically.
