Go into safe mode and download HitmanPro and run that to see if it finds any problems.Or try with your Firewall switched off.

The other antivirus progs probably won't install because Avast has not been uninstalled. You could try fixing Avast as per the instructions on Avast Support (step by step instructions with screenshots)

I'd try a system restore to before the crash. If Avast still misbehaving then use their removal tool in safe mode. Either reinstall or use another.

Tried all the options but no good so have done a complete system restore ( I use "EaseusToGo" a very good free backup program) but thanks for all the help and advice

Thanks for the feedback but the backup restore would have been my first choice if I knew you had one.
