Am I understanding it correctly?
Does your clock not show the correct time/date?

That could be an option with regards to restore

To Eddy and Essexboy,
  Thanks for the help.  Greatly appreciate it. 

I have resolved the issue... but never REALLY solved the problem.  From everything that I've went through in the past few days I am most certain Avast has a coding error that needs to be corrected.

Main Issue. (Avast crashes and will not uninstall after a TRIAL version expires)
Something gets corrupted and even installing a license key does not solve it.  (I've read several other posts on this topic and no one had a solution)

I "resolved" the issue by doing a system restore to a time before the trial expired (changing the system clock to that time also) then inserting a license key to upgrade to a full version.  Then updating my clock to the current time.  Finally Avast is working and my system is back to normal.

Thanks again for your help,
Regards,
Rob
