Only because before doing that you disabled the self-defence module or you wouldn't have been able to disable the service. So why you can't modify avast5.ini using notepad is very strange.

You say you believe you opened it in notepad, see image, this is opened in notepad, so does yours have Notepad in the title bar ?

If not you aren't using notepad, try right clicking on avast5.ini and select Open with and select notepad from the list.

Well I don't have the pro version so I can't check it out.

However, that said, it would depend on exactly what you enter as the parameter at the end of the line, given what PK said:
0 = hide, 1 = show always, 2 = show only for admin users.

If you put 0 them presumably it hides that option and you can't use it perhaps you should try =1 as the parameter.
