I installed Avast anti-virus and scanned for viruses. I did a restart, and after logging in, I am met with a black screen with a small command prompt in the corner of the monitor that reads C:\WINDOWS\system32>. I could not find anything online that describes the same issue. Thank you for reading.

Did avast found any virus? or is the restart for installing avast?
can you get into safe mode?
where did you get the avast installation ?
Thank you for your reply. It did find something. I believe it may have been a Trojan. Avast said to restart to get rid of it. I am able to get into safe mode, but the same problem happens. I installed from the official website.
