Hi, as you have had both AVG and Norton on your machine I suspect your profile is corrupt, create a new profile as admin and boot into it, does the system boot OK do not do anything else just post back the results. I would also remove AVG using their uninstaller (see tetonbob's link) .

AVG | Download tools and utilities

You would be better served using MSE (microsoft security essentials) and windows firewall.

Have you downloaded a third party theme for windows?

Backup all important files.


Go to "Start" type in CMD located CMD.exe right click on CMD.exe then select "Run As Administrator" at the command prompt type in then hit enter...

Code:
CHKDSK /R
type in Y for yes then manually reboot.

Hi, chkdsk here is a good idea, it will at least tidy things up. Typically we would look for some process that is at fault, easiest way is to perform a clean boot:-
