Which says it's restricted (not-admin)? Windows or avast Virus Cleaner?
Do you have avast Home installed? If so, it's better using it than the Cleaner (which is a very limited tool compared to the installed antivirus).
The best things in life are free.

When the virus cleaner will be updated to a recent version? because the current version was created in 2007. I think that it is a tool of big use when the antivirus or antimalware is not capable of eliminating completely the badware.

To use the Cleaner with administrative priviledges run it an administrator mode. Right click the tool and choose the "Run an administrator"
