Mcafee with Avira free editon conflicting and i cannot reboot my laptop

Hello,
I had installed a copy of Mcafee antivirus . I chose to try this avira antivirus but i did not remembered to uninstall first mcafee.
At the end of avira installation i chose to boot the antivirus in "safe mode" or something like that.

Now i cannot reboot because in normal mode the loading stack in windows green bar; booting in safe mode allows me to see the desktop only without icons but also i cannot operate anything, i was success only to open the task manager but i cannot start anythings.
I am running Vista.

Please help me to find a solution without delete all my data.

Thanks a Lot

Can you by any chance boot into safe mode by tapping F8 while booting up and select a System Restore point before all this happened?

Well the MCPR McAfee home product removal tool is linked in my signature. Avira removal is through the Control Panel the normal way.

At this stage if it were my machine I would either take it into a repair shop, or, if I had the operating system installation disc I would boot to it, format the drive and reinstall the system.

For future reference, the rule of thumb for protection is.....

1 anti-virus application ONLY (two or more will clash and actually leave you open to infection)

1 firewall only (exception, 1 software one and a hardware one, as in a router, is OK).

You can have one or two anti-spyware applications however.

Also don 't use more than 1 pop-up blocker and , when you have a protection suite installed, leave your browser at default settings.

See this link for anti-spyware suggestions.

Always keep your system totally up to date with both critical and non-critical updates from Microsoft Updates.
