I recently ran Avast Cleanup on my laptop and now my laptop is completely screwed up! I can no longer open ANY of my programs. None. Not even Avast. My computer was fine before I ran it, just a little sluggish. Now it's basically unusable! What the heck did it do to my laptop, and how can it be fixed???
I cannot open ANY programs. None. Not any of the Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, etc.) programs, not Dropbox, not Avast, not Adobe Reader, not Google Chrome, NOTHING.

What it will let me open is Microsoft Edge. I can then open some websites, but have great difficulty in getting them to load before they time out.

OS is Windows 10
Avast Pro
No other antivirus software
Can't check the CleanUp log file, as it won't open
Any time I try to open a program it tells me the application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000034). This happens for all of them.
No infection.

Here is what the error means [site contain questionable download]
I would suggest you to go to service, because the problem is really serious and it may be difficult to solve without a pro.
