Won't boot after getting "unexpected error" of avastui at shutdown

I got this error with an error code at shutdown involving avastui.exe or something like that and i had to press the power button to shut the computer off. After that only the lights on the computer would turn on, the screen stayed black. I've tried hard resetting it (taking out the battery and pressing the power button) and it still won't work
