What avast version are you using (latest is 12.3.2280) ?
Earlier versions of avast did have two avastui.exe processes running, if you had more than one UI window open.

Does this happen all of the time after boot even if you don't open the UI ?

Having just reinstalled it, I just wonder if a clean reinstall also utilising the avast uninstall utility might be worth a try.

I have rebooted the machine, and now it seems good. Windows 10. Windows 10 sometimes produces oddities. :) Last time, however accidentally I have installed for testing the Norton AntiVirus on the physical machine instead of the virtual machine and it have asked to remove Avast Free that i  have enabled. Anyone can to make mistakes even if IT. :)
