You have windows 7 so do a system restore. While booting the pc keep tapping f8 until a black screen appears with a list of choices. follow onscreen directions. Don't do a destructive restore. Do a system restore back to a previous date. You will see it. After you do it, run a full system anti-virus scan as well as spy-ware etc....
First.. install a different antivirus program while you are fixing this installation. Try microsoft security essentials or AVG.
Check your program files folder for any mention of Avast, and delete it.
Run a search for avast and delete anything you find.
Download a registry cleaner, I use CC Cleaner.
Run the cleaner and remove all the files it finds, run the registry cleaner and let it delete all the problems it finds .
IF you want to try with avast again, uninstall the other antivirus program you may have installed. then try with the Avast again
Click on Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore -> Select the Restore date -> OK to perform the System Restore.
NOTE: The System Restore procedure will restore the Registry and other settings back to the date and time selected. No data will be lost. Saved documents and e-mail will not be affected by performing a System Restore. Any Hardware or Software that has been installed after the date of the restore point will need to be reinstalled.
just uninstall the software from control panel add/remove programs..if still problem continues try to delete its entry from reigistry...but if you are unfamiliar with registry just go to
all programs > accessories > system tools > select system restore and when it opens click next now select the previous date on which you have installed your software ..for ex, if you have installed your software on 5 april select the date like 4 april or any previous date.. it will definitely solve your problem.
