I don't think so...

Starting with build 507, you can customize the sandboxed items shown on the context menu.

Edit avast5.ini file, add the following line to the [UserInterface] section:
ShellExtensionSandbox=0

where: 0 = hide, 1 = show always, 2 = show only for admin users

disable self-defense module first, and if that's not enough (and that's probably not enough) turn off avast services temporarily (in computer management). Restart services when you're done.

You have to use Notepad as the self-defence module only allows read access to this file using another text editor other than notepad.

that's impossible, if you disabled avast services you can't get an access denied. Do you have any shield still running?

ps: services must be disabled there >>> screenshot

Depends on what user account you are logged on as, limited user I guess would get access denied, but if you are able to disable the avast service presumably you have admin privileges.
