Hi everyone, laptop is driving me mad, hope someone can help.
It recently decided to just not open firefox or Chrome no matter how i tried to open them, this is getting a little inconvenient. On top of this, pressing the stand by button doesnt seem to do anything either and my scroll bars on the mouse pad arrn't responding. With trying to launch the browsers, the hour glass appears, and my loading light thingy starts to flash, but then nothing happens. I read some posts and saw that AVG, which i had until recently, was using nearly 100% of the CPU with one of its shields. So i removed AVG and installed Avast.After running a scan, it found some infected files, which it dealt with. Now i have the same problems, and when i try to open most things i get error messages saying certain .dll files failed to initialize (or something similar), error messages such as "taskmgr.exe - Application Error. The application failed to initialize properly (0xc000012d)", or ones saying i dont have enough quota.

I am truly at a loss, and would like to thank everyone that has taken the time to read this. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
