Do you mean you can't put detected malware into it, or that you can't open it, restore from it?

You can open it directly using this shortcut (assuming default installation):

C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashChest.exe

What do you need to get into the Chest for ?

The Chest is in three sections:
  • The only area you should be interested in is the Infected Files section, this is where the files detected by avast and selected by you to move to the chest are placed.
  • The User Files section is where the user can add files they suspect of being malware but not detected by avast.
  • The System Files section is where avast keeps back-up copies of important system files in case the original becomes infected (leave them alone).
  • The All Chest Files is a collation of the three sections.
