I was thinking that, but it hasn't impeded installing any other avast components (including the browser add-ons) in the past. So perhaps we need in UI help for this option.

But then again some of us are still have problems getting the browser add-ons installed in the first place.

Note: Scheduled backups will not be visible in the Windows notification area when running as SYSTEM.
•New registry entry to disable tray icon status messages and tool tips

A clean install fixed the problem.
