I installed avast antivirus latest edition last week on win xp home edition. After which i am unable to open any win appln for ex IE, Control panel,regedit and i am unable to open the add or remove prog. i open ie by right clicking on it and click on run as and there is some security bar and uncheck it and then open. i found so many errors like unable to use the safely remove hardware when a usb is connected.
Then since i was not able to navigate to add or remove prog i clicked the installer of avast again and removed the antivirus thinking all these issues were related to it. Thought i would find solace after removing the avast but still the same situation.
now i installed a bootable win xp pro cd thinking i can format my c drive and install xp afresh but the error comes the hard disk is turned off and unable to continue with installation. but it boots into the hdd.
please provide me with a solution.
Thanks in advance
