You can set the VRBD creation options using the VRDB icon in the system tray (the i-ball). You can also manually start the creation of VRDB this way.

Maybe you have merged the two avast! icons? In that case, you would have a "VRDB" submenu in the ordinary avast! popup menu - i.e. on the a-icon.

I've right clicked the a-ball and there is nothing to suggest I have merged. is that the correct place to check this.

What are the menu items when you rightclick the ball?

What operating system do you have? Some people using WinXP occasionally "lose" the icon when they have the option "Hide inactive icons" checked in the TaskBar options... (i.e. unchecking this option brings it back).

Yes - that did the trick. I did have it checked. Thanks very much for your help Igor.
