Welcome to the forums, doogiedoes   :)

First, try a repair of avast. The below is for XP but you should be able to do something similar in Vista.

To do a repair of avast :

Control panel > Add/remove programs > click once on avast to select it > click on Change/Remove > scroll down the left pane and click on repair > click OK> follow directions
