Reading this other thread click here which you have not ticked as resolved, am I right in saying that you have deleted Panda antivirus, have installed AVAST and are getting blue screens?

Its confusing when you start another thread as the advice given in this thread didn't know anything about what you had already done.

You can also get AVAST to scan as a screensaver, so when you leve your PC /laptop for awhi it will automatically scan.

Right click the desktop- properties - screensaver - select Avast fom the list - click apply

Lets go back to basics. Answer a few questions if you will.

Was the blue screen at startup happening when you used Panda? IE was it there before you deleted Panda and installed AVAST?

When you had Panda installed did you run a scan, did it find and remove anything?

Now you have AVAST installed have you ran it and did it find anything?

And lastly before you installed Panda did you have any antivirus software installed?

What I am trying to work out is if the blue screen is anything to do with a virus. If you have run scans and it finds nothing then its very unlikely it is anything to do with a virus. If this is the case then a repair of windows might be all that is needed. But it is essential to get one and only one antivirus program up and running and to do a full scan with it to eliminate any virus problems.
