OK, so a few days ago I started my computer and System Program was open with a prompt to name the computer, and within ten seconds the blue screen popped up saying "Windows has been shut down to protect your computer..." etc. I had recently installed AVG antivirus which came with a bunch of components, so I went into safe mode to try and remove them or at least do a system restore. I managed to uninstall most of them, with the exception of some video component because for whatever reason when I tried to uninstall certain programs a window would pop up saying "Windows Installer is not working properly, please install the latest version", or something to that effect.
When I went to install a new installer, the same thing popped up. System Restore wouldn't work because it claimed I was offline (which I wasn't, I'm typing this now is Safe Mode) and required the command prompt, which I entered and was told I hadn't set any restore points, and when I tried to set them it simply wouldn't send me to the link they recommended. This is getting frustrating and I'm not sure how to go about fixing anything when I can't seem to successfully uninstall anything or system restore. Any ideas?
