I have dealth with dozens of topics since then
I will read yours and post shortly
Whilst I am doing so the first and most important is this - from my post on the clean boot
On rebooting from clean boot check before opening a browser that AVAST is running.
Re Graphics drive - Yours are integrated on the motherboard Intel
the last driver was 2007 I would think it unlikely that you do not have it.
simply click on the display adaptor in device manager, open the Intel shown and on the driver tab click update driver.
However if it is this onehttp://downloadcente...oller+Hub+(GMCH
It is pointless as you have it.
Re the clean boot, having satisfied yourself that AVAST is active and that you can go updates.
You amy temporarily leave it.
On the message that appears re system config untility, simply click the small box 0 to check it
DO NOT SHOW this message again.
If you ascertain that some applications etc are not running that you need, you may return to normal boot, and then Hide Microsoft services, and IF the problem occurs again, disable and uncheck startup items, until you find which is causing the problem
If of course you need further help just post
