What do you mean with "red dot"?
What version of Avast?
What OS?
If you get an error, what is the exact error?
Are there any errors in the Avast log file?
Any other problems with your system?

It's a red cross  ;)

Sure... Without RPC you won't have even Windows running...

Can you try to repair your installation?
Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove programs > avast! antivirus > Remove
Then choose Repair function in the popup window (Repair).

If this does not help, can you uninstall / boot / install / boot again?

Do you have any other antivirus installed in your system? Did you have in the past?

onthe icon in the task bar and avast will not start with the Message "the aavm has detected a RPCerror"
and will not open if you go into the menue. If you click on the desk top icon it say " PROGRAM COULD NOT GET STORAGE"

RPC error most likely are correct by this procedure:
Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove programs > avast! antivirus > Remove
Then choose Repair function in the popup window (Repair).

If this does not help, can you uninstall / boot / install / boot again?

and will not open if you go into the menue. If you click on the desk top icon it say " PROGRAM COULD NOT GET STORAGE"

Storage problems are generally solved when you repair your installation.
If it does not work, download avast External Control (see the link in my signature), change the storage method from ODBC to XML (you can do it manually if you want, see 'Settings' on my signature).  ;)

Install SP2 and the problem should be solved. This is very likely caused by you using a RC version of SP2 and not the official release.
