When installing antivirus on win 7 64 bit wont boot
Hello, I recently attempted to install Anti-virus software on my Mom's HP laptop running Win 7 Home Premium. After that, the system would not boot. So I did a System Restore, and tried again thinking the Defrag I did after messed up the files. I then tried to install it again. Same result. At that point, I figured I would part ways with what I was using, AVG free 2013, and try Microsoft Internet Security Essentials. That ALSO produced same result. The only thing I could think of was that she had some kind of software conflict vying for the same space in the machine. She has a Norton online back up program installed and CC Cleaner, neither of which seem to be an antivirus. Can anybody shed some light? Her OS is 64 bit.

Most likely she has a virus already and that got "cleaned" by AVG and MS SE and made the OS unusable. Install the anti virus, boot from windows DVD and try a repair.
