Are you using Windows XP?

If so, disable (and enable it after) System Restore

Start > Control Panel > System > System restore > Disable
Click Apply
Enable it again
Click Ok

It will be good too if you delete the temporary Internet files?
To do this go to Internet explorer >Tools > Internet options > Delete files > Click delete all offline content (just to be sure) > click ok.
It might take some time to delete them.

After that, schedule a boot-time scanning:
Start avast! > Right click the skin > Schedule a boot-time scanning
Select for scanning archives.
Boot.
The best things in life are free.

If the steps of thechnical not resolve, try scan your computer with Adware SE and Spybot.
My fryend haves the problem, and resolved with Adware because haves a spyware, and the spyware download trojans on system startup...
