Ok before th update there were like 8 shields, suddenly now there are only 3.  What happened?  Is something wrong with my avast or is this intentional?  Why remove the other shields?

There are three now. They got merged, I think to reduce overlap in code. So nothing wrong with your installation.
1. Toshiba Satellite A75, Windows XP-Pro-SP3, Avast! free v9, Sunbelt Firewall 4.7.4.0, SSM, Opera 12.17, SeaMonkey+NoScript, mvps hosts, (MalwareBytes updated and run on demand only, rarely used), Acronis v11, SUMo
2. Toshiba Thrive tablet (rooted) ICS, AdAway (hosts), Opera, Avast Mobile Security 3.0.7801, Titanium Backup, App Backup&Restore
