Can you post the 'source code' for us?  ;D
Or, at least, add some small 'help' files at the zip package?  8)

???  ??? Several files? Impossible. ZIP file contains only avast! External Control.exe file as Technical already said.

Ok here's little explenation for functions:
Enable avast! Antivirus Protection
Enables all services and program files required for avast! to work correctly.

Disable avast! Antivirus Protection
It perfectly disables avast! antivirus including all services,program files and also removes trey icons. Useful if you want to test some other antivirus without restart or to totaly disable avast! for any other reason.

Auto-Restart avast! Antivirus Protection
It automatically restarts avast! Antivirus program (restart includes restart of all services,trey icons,mail protection program and update program).

Launch avast! Mail Protection Wizard
This starts the avast! Mail Protection Wizard.
Useful if you deleted shortucts from start menu.

Launch avast! Log Viewer
Similar to Mail Protection Wizard,except this one launches avast! Log Viewer.

Launch avast! Chest (Quarantine)
Quickly view infected/suspicious files stored inside Chest (Quarantine).

Launch avast! Skin Packer
Quickly launch avast! Skin Packer for avast! Antivirus skins.

Perform avast! Brutal Remove
Removes avast! Antivirus in brutal way. This is useful if you cannot uninstall it in normal way through Add/Remove Programs. Everything is fully automatic.

After Auto-Restart option,check Run Time in On-Access panel. If its counting form zero again than it was restarted properly. There is usually no need to restart avast! unless you encounter any problems and you think that fast auto restart might fix them.

For example,fast restart fixes old VPS date in email tags(after VPS Update) and recreates Virus Cleaner DLL file inside TEMP folder.
