Your OTL log shows you still have Microsoft Security Essentials installed, this needs to be fully removed if you want avast to work correctly.

Hi there is also no indication of Avast running in the services/drivers and no run keys are present.  When you try to install Avast are any errors presented ?

as a precaution i uninstalled avast and installed microsoft security essentials and then i generated the scan logs.

i did not see any errors during avast installation.

Could you install Avast please and then run a fresh OTL log..  You can keep MSE on for the duration

it is working normally. avast icon is the first thing that appears in the system tray and shutdown is very quick again.


glitch in the matrix i guess
