Startup Programs - Change

You may solve your problem by removing AVG and replacing it with Avast 5. If not, run Avast's boot scan for deepest scan.
Factory Restore. PC is connected via ethernet.
Uninstalled Norton Trial.
Installed:
Avast
Disabled Windows Defender
MS Office
Firefox
Canon Wireless Printer.

No issues.
Again in morning, boot takes well over 10 minutes and blue screens.

restart in Safe Mode (really quick)
Select boot scan in Avast.

Hardisk is working but no signal to monitor - left it for several minutes and now about to force shutdown
Functioned as usual thourghout the day

Actually, as I see that the hard drive light is sporadic, indicative of good activity, not static, maybe the option I chose

All hard drives
System files
Startup

Will continue to run overnight. I'm no worse off, just find it odd that there is no signal to the monitor, whereas it was previously showing file by file progress at a command prompt type screen...

Make sure you have worked through all of these steps: Win7 troubleshooting fundamentals

Do you have access to a Win7 Installation DVD for your version to consider clean reinstall? An HP computer is so clogged with bloatware and useless factory utilities that sometimes it takes clean reinstalling with just the OS to free it up: re-install windows 7

I have a DVD as part of the recovery/repair disk creation, as well as about 6 other disks as part of recovery image creation.

System is 2 months old, but best buy will charge a restocking fee. I probably need to call them and maybe also HP

Did a Win7 installation DVD come with the computer. Doubtful unless it's a business computer. If it's only a Factory Recovery Disk then you get the bloatware reinstalled as well.

If it's under warranty I would call tech support which is included for the first year, along with a full replacement warranty.

No DVD came w the PC.

Will do. I ran full computer avast scan last night and woke up to a succesful completion.

However, the default power saving mode is set to turn monitor off in 10 mins and sleep in 20 minutes. Monitor remained on and PC was clearly awake.

The #1 culprit blocking sleep is display adapter. Update in Device Manager to latest cued in optional Windows Updates, from the Support Downloads webpage for your computer model, or from the Device's maker. You may need to roll it back to a previous version - you can see all installed adapters on Display adapter>Driver>Update Driver>Browse my computer>Let me pick from a list.

Check also the performance log to see what devices are failing at time of sleep: Computer lags every couple seconds

I believe you said you have a backup image. If sleep was working or the install was working better overall at time image was made, you may want to restore from that image: System Image Recovery

If these don't help, add it to the list for tech support as they need to get your computer running correctly or replace it within the first year - ideally with enough time to fully shake out the replacement.

Ok, updated the display driver.

The long run ot only happens in the morning; I'll check again tomorrow, and since I did a restore already, System Image Recovery may be my last resort (I also have the repair disk, but that is probably the same as repair selection offered on the PC F8 options)?

System Recovery Options

I'd use the Repair CD if you have it because F8 Advanced Boot Tools run from the same disk as problem install, hence CD/DVD is a more stable platform for repair or reimaging.
