    You did bought the software from Steam or Humble Bundle, right?
    Is Steam online while you try to launch MV?

    So, in a nutshell, you got Steam online no problem, you access game on steam no problem, but MV refuses to launch. On betas you got it set at 1.5.1 and you let it downgrade (steam restart might be needed). After the downgrade you right clicked and selected properties and checked for integrity. You left it work 100% and left any extra downloads complete. You are now trying to launch it by double clicking the tiny project I gave you, but can't launch the program. Right? If anything I worte is wrong, even on sequence, please try EXACTLY and at the SAME sequence what I suggest here.

    How interesting. This shouldn't happen really. I mean this is a first for me. Let me check again what is going on so far.
    Andar told you to take care of any anti virus or firewalls, someone told you to try to run as administrator MV, I asked you to try compatibility mode just in case, you have DISABLED steam cloud, cleaned up steam cloud folders, you try to open a clean tiny project and your PC is still refusing to... wait a minute... System restore you said? Are you on a laptop? If so, right click on your desktop and tell me what your screen resolution is. It might be relevant. I try to guess anything that might be wrong since I literally have no other concrete ideas on what might cause this problem. @Andar you got any ideas through your expertise?

    1366x768.
    And, bingo! i'm on a laptop.
    But what does that have to do with the price of tea in china? (Sorry for being a little snarky. Just trying to make humor)

    Everything can be related. Since we have 0 information I see this as a puzzle. I have yet to ask the right question that will give you the answer though. :/
    Can you do something risky? Can you totally disable temporarily everything on Avast and try running MV again? If it wont work, you will enable Avast once again.

    Some Laptops have screens or hardware that is too small to run the RMs.
    And I'm fresh out of ideas as well, as long as you really cleared download cache before reinstalling and as long as you have cleared RM in every part of your AntiVirus (there often are several components that need to be set to ignore a program).

    There is a way to test that however. You need to follow these steps exactly in order or you might risk virus Infection however:
    1) download the latest setup for your AntiVirus program.
    2) physically disconnect your Computer from the Internet (remove the network cable or shut off your WLAN Router depending on how you go into Internet)
    3) completely deinstall the AV and disable the windows-integrated AVs.
    4) reboot the PC.
    5) lauch steam and when it fails to connect, tell it to go into offline mode.
    6) try to launch RM now.

    If it works now, you missed one Option to whitelist the program in the AV.

    7) Start the Installation of your AntiVirus from the new setup you downloaded.
    8) reconnect to the Internet when the AV Installation needs it for updates.

    Let's get thermonuclear on this.

    I'm gonna try @Andar 's advice here, and completely uninstall avast.
    This is going to be fun.
    edit
    Not even the mighty uninstallation of Avast worked.

    Then it's a different program that blocks, but nothing in your list of programs looks like it would do that.

    No, write a techsupport ticket in the links top right. That will get you to the official support - who have additional options to solve your problem.
    Here on the forum we are all just other people helping, we don't have internal access to the database or to steam itself.
