Sorry, but no such option exists.

It's easy to write a script in AutoIt for your purpose.
I use something like this on parent's PC. Because unfortunately they don't understand how to turn it on. Our Internet is really badly censored :(
Code: [Select]
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

$avast = "c:\Program Files\AVAST Software\SecureLine\vpn.exe"
$title = "Avast SecureLine VPN"

Run($avast)
WinWaitActive($title)
Sleep(1 * 1000)
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{ENTER}")
Sleep(10 * 1000)
WinClose($title)

Which proves my point.

Avast has no default setting to automatically start Secureline VPN at Windows boot.  There likely is a reason why this is so, but this question must be posted to an avast dev for a correct answer.

I've just asked that question on the Developers forum.
When I get an answer so will you. :)

From the Developers,
The feature is already available on a Mac and should be available for Windows systems by the end of May. :)
