Yes am using windows firewall. This was a freshly installed OS avast was the only AV I put on it. From day one I have had problems with Avast and windows 8. I have reinstalled avast 11 times,I used the uninstaller the removal tool,and followed everyones instructions to the letter.Short of getting windows 7 I dont know what else I can try?????

This morning I have tried a few other AV's and they all work fine.Avast is the only one that doesn't.I suppose I will have to go to something else

Unless someone comes up with a solution for Avast and window 8, I have gone to AVG It may not be the best but at least it works on win 8

Did you upgrade to Windows 8 since you're still showing Vista in your signature or, is this a different computer ???

You may have discovered the solution by now, but I happened across this thread because I lost my tray icon recently due to some system tinkering to resolve Windows 8.1 upgrade issues.

Try this commonly overlooked procedure:
Right click your task bar.
Open Task Manager.
Click the Startup tab.
Check the status of avast! Antivirus.
It will probably be disabled.  If so, select it and click Enable button at bottom.
Exit Task Manager.
Reboot and enjoy.
