Hi I am using a Packard bell laptop and downloaded avast virus protection, not the free version. Then the computer would not shut down, and I got the BSOD. I followed Satish advice by changing SATA from ACHI to IDE. now the computer will not start!!! HELP!

Changing the drive boot order isn't going to solve the issue with BSOD! Change it back, and boot in safe mode, and uninstall it. What OS are you using?

OK, so the safest thing to do, is uninstall newest to oldest. Do one at a time. Look for the programs that were all installed on one specific day, and get rid of all from the single day!

When trying to uninstall Adobe or Apple programs I get a message that the Windows Installer Service cannot be accessed, so I can't uninstall
