    windows cannot find pleasewait.exe

    Hi Gurus,

    I am having a serious problem and my lack of knowledge I had done some registry changes.

    I was using avast antivirus and after trial period finished I uninstalled it.

    And tried to delete leftover keys from windows registry.

    Some keys were not deleting and said access denied.

    So I google it and used a tool called Reset_subinacl and then used another tool named runassystem

    With runassystem i opened regedit.exe as system user and then deleted leftover avast keys

    Now when i re-booted the system it wont start

    Tried repairing the system via F8>repair but not to avail

    Then tried win 7 32x ultimate cd to restore os and it did some magic and then system started

    Now after restart I can see an error appeared and says windows cannot find pleasewait.exe and clicking next will reboot the system

    and I can not use built in touchpad or keyboard as well

    Note : I have another OS installed in the same HDD on different partition as 2nd os Win 7 64x Ultimate and system restore is disabled

    Please help me Gurus

    Alternatively you could try booting to safe mode then using a restore point. Once back to normal t=see this for avast removal:

    One reason I stay away from AV "real time shield" type software is I consider uninstallers that leave these hooks behind a hostile act. It's like trying to get your money out of the bank. They act like your stuff belong to them.
