Hello, guys.

I need your help with my (very) old laptop.


When I came from work I open my laptop like usual, but surprise! It enter on setup repair automatically. It is for the first time when this is happen. After a few minutes appear the message that "WIndows cannot repair this computer automatically".


I clicked on finish, the laptop turned off. After I open it, appears "Windows is loading files" and then, again, that setup repair again.

I press F8 and try to enter in safe mode, but again, nothing, just jumped to  "setup repair". Neither last known configuration didn't work.


The only thing that I did last night, before I go to sleep, was to update Avast. It is possible that an update to cause this error?

I mentioned I use Windows 7, but in special for writing and little to youtube or news (I'm using Mozilla).


What can I do? It is possible to made it work again without format? Or just to save data. Have a lot of old stuff on C and D partition.

Thank you very much and hope someone can guide me.


PS: When I press "View problem details" after Startup Repair said cannot repair it, here what appears at Problem Signature 07: CorruptAcl
