uninstalkling avast

by brooklyn354 / February 5, 2008 5:04 AM PST

a friend of mine installed avast pro in my laptop dell d600 latitude. I had a problem with it and uninstalled it using the windows add/remove. Now the comp. is doing strange things, it wont shut down or let me install anything. I have no virus program now and cant install one, the system freezes up, cannot do a system restore or acess any programs. when I try to hit the f8 key it will let me enter safe mode or last known good config. and then tells me to restart I try to restart but it wont it just frezzes on the blue screen. when it did woprk for a while i managed to download the uninstall utility from the avast site to clean it up but it doesnt work.
