Which AV program did you have prior to Avast and did you use its uninstaller to get rid of all of its bits ?

I don't think Avast would cause such problems and you should look elsewhere perhaps.

Avast did put out an update that caused fairly large problems on Vista systems...

I'm sorry to hear of your trouble with Avast johnydblack and this is too late to help now, but I suggest that you back up regularly in future to avoid such a disaster from ever happening again! You may find the 2 'sticky' threads about 'Image Backups' at the top of the following forum useful:
