Are you sure you have the free version and not a trial version?
Look at the top of the "overview" screen. It should look like this.

My Avast

does that look like SUB Version?

how can i make that mistake if awry time i open Avast that is at my face?

new window, there is connect button, so its Disconnected, so it means it is really turned off?

It doesn't turn on till you ask it to turn on. In the free version, you have a three day trial.
After that trial, you'll need to pay for the service if you want to continue to use it. :)
Even after you pay for it, it only runs when you start it. I only start it when I'm away from home and on
public (open) wifi.
Check your settings there are some options that make using it on the road easier.

well i use free ware, when it comes to programs, but when its turned on under setting=tools, does it matter, does it take ram when its Disconnected under tools?
i mean does it matter that it is turned on or off under settings=tools?
i don't have laptop, Alienware x51 R2, so its always at home, i was just curious about secureline

It isn't on by default. If you don't want it at all, simply remove it by making a change in the avast installation.

i can also simply turn it of from here?

the other things on the list are active in free version?
as the things currently are does it use ram, or it won't until i connect it from tools?

They are tools. They aren't resident and will only resources when you use the selected tool.

If you expect answers and help from us about your problems and concerns, than you can at least give us update information from your computer.
Without that, this is more of a phishing trip than a request for help.  :(

it is no problem cause i explained the difference, cause the only important part was above the TXT about trial, the part where the connect button in the picture is, so i don't need picture from my pc from my avast cause only difference was that i don't have that TXT about trial & i explained it, not my fault if people don't  read my full post or don't pay attention to details about what i write (i wrote stuff above the picture just to avoid misunderstandings like this one), its a hassle to upload pictures, so if i can find 99% identical picture to my avast online i use it. that's why i recommend that Avast team add a new option for picture upload so user's can upload pictures here directly from PC with out that [ img ][ /img ] stuff

also i already got my answer before he mentioned that trial, it was nice of him, but it wasn't my screen shot from where he so that TXT about Trial, ofc i don't know was he talking about screenshot i posted

Always post a screenshot from "your" computer. A random screenshot proves absolutely nothing.
A random screenshot is not pertinent to your issue on your computer.
Please provide screenshots from your machine. Until you do we are only guessing.

Explaining is not the same as showing. Give us some proof!
