My friend is using Windows XP SP3 so that he can't see what's the another antivirus in his pc.It just displayed "Windows found more than one antivirus program on this computer and at least one reports that it is currently up to date and virus scanning is on.Antivirus software protect your computer against viruses and other security threats."  in the "virus protection"  tab.

Hmmm... You need to get that information form the security center, don't you?
Most probably it is MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) or even Windows Defender.

Ask your friend what AV was used before avast.

Did you not mention that your friend had this/ How to uninstall Fake AV(360 杀毒)/ in your other thread you opened. This thread needs to be closed, comment's are followed up in yongsua's other thread.
