Since i'm using the same version on a Windows 10 computer,
I suggest you try the following: Repair Avast:
Control Panel> Program and Features (Add/remove program)>Select Avast> Select Repair. Reboot when completed
https://www.avast.com/faq.php?article=AVKB204

If Repair doesn't fix the problem, try the following:
Clean Install of Avast:

There's nothing else I can suggest. I also haven't personally seen this on the many computers I run accross
and have access to.
