I run Windows 7 OS.

Basically, my samsung n140 netbook has AVG free on it since I brought it last year.
When AVG was updating the laptop powered down and now windows will not load up.

What I have tried so far............

.......I have downloaded AVG recovery CD (for USB stick) to my other computer,

I purchased a Sandisk blade 4GB USB and formatted in CMD prompt:
-diskpart
-list disk
-selected disk
-clean
-create partition primary
-select partition
-active
-format fs=fat32

once complete, I extracted the downloaded file to the USB stick.

I put this in my netbook fired it up, F2, then selected to boot from USB HDD , F10 to save.

The computer then would then attempt to load but stopped and asked me to remove the device before it would continue.

What am I doing wrong? I feel I am close but missing something important.

Very grateful of any advice.

Cheers

Attempt to carry out a system restore to an earlier point in time.

On startup press F8 and select the option from the menu, if the option isnt there then boot to safe mode and you will get asked if you would like to restore to an earlier restore point.
