Avast Passwords is a component of Avast Antivirus (Free/Premium). It is not part of Avast One. If you have Avast One installed, you need to uninstall it and install Avast Antivirus.
Next, you should follow this guide to install Avast Passwords
If by "format" you mean that you re-installed Windows, Avast Passwords would be on the old partition, and simply re-installing Avast Passwords on the new Windows partion will not bring your Avast Password data back.
