So recently I've been plagued by computer troubles and just recovered days ago.

Today on my free time I decided to update all of my firewall/antivirus/spyware/windows applications to be on the safe side. I'm not quite sure which (as I updated them within minutes of each other), but when I updated my Comodo firewall and ATI Catalyst (or attempted to) driver, on restart nothing would open or load (other than a few programs). I've checked Comodo and set everything to allow, and even closed my firewall, but no success.

For example:

My start-up progs fail to load, such as teatimer, Avast!, and MSN. Pretty much every application other than Windows applications and services (such as Control Panel, Paint, My Computer working) doesn't work. I click them, get the loading circle cursor for a second, then nothing. Firefox, IE, MSN, trying to manually open Avast! etc., any other program fails.

I see nothing strange in the task manager, and no new unfamiliar processes are running (I can't open process explorer too, by the way). chkdsk shows nothing odd this time.

Under the event viewer, I find logs like this:

The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
SASDIFSV
SASKUTIL


The avast! Antivirus service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.


A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the avast! Antivirus service to connect.

^and replace Avast! with all other start-up progs.
I've tried a system restore on different restore points but they have all failed.

Any help?

This is driving me nuts, my computer can't do anything at ALL.

(FYI, I typed these two posts by starting up Safe Mode + Networking, only way I can open programs or get online)

I have a hunch it has to do with Catalyst and driver errors, but I'm not sure, nor do I have any plan of action right now, so any help will be appreciated, whether it be by Catalyst or not.

I Googled SASDISF and SASKUTIL,it seems both are connected to superantispyware.Has you have been having problems for a while try doing a boot time scan with Avast in safe mode and see what comes up.

Sorry for the lack of response, but virus/spyware scans show nothing, I think it's an upgrade error, all was fine until after I updated Comodo and/or Catalyst driver (disabled Comodo, still not working).

And yeah, right now I'm typing this in Safe Mode again, :huh:

This looks like a biggie...might just reformat. But until then, any tips?
