Last night avast found a couple of suspicious files and so I moved them to the chest and restarted. This morning I find that most of my programs will not open, including avast, and even some Windows utilities, so I can only assume those files were likely false positives and necessary for Windows 7 to function properly. Unfortunately, trying to do a System Restore resulted in the 0x80070005 error. Windows is already recognizing avast as being turned off and I can't even open the Create new user account to try and bypass the error with another account with administrative privileges. In other words, UGH!
Can anyone please offer some suggestions to try and get my computer working properly again?
