What procedure did you use when removing the AV program? Did you do a plain uninstall, or did you go "deep" and performed some registry clean-up and such?
I would get the Windows disk and do a repair-install of the OS. You will not lose the programs, but you will lose all the Windows updates. It's better than losing everything via a clean install, however, in the end, if this does not work, it might come down to that.
