Please, try the following:
In the <avast4>\Data folder, there is avast4.ini file. Open this file in Notepad, find the item Database=ODBC and change it to Database=XML (and save the changes).
Now, restart the computer.
Does it have any (positive) effect?

Sorry abou the long delay in coming  back to you,  but my friend did not dare to make those change as instructed over the phone so I had to find time to go and do it myself.

Anyway, it works, thank you very much. Can you explain what would have caused the problem.

Glad to hear it works.
It seems that there is a problem with Microsoft Jet drivers on the computer - so avast! cannot correctly access its database to read the information about the resident task.
You may consider to update/reinstall the Jet drivers (MDAC) - downloadable from Microsoft. If everything works well, though, you probably don't have to worry.
