Is there a way to put the update shortcuts on the Windows Start menu?

In Professional version you could link to:
"C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashUpd.exe" vps /silent /nodetails
for instance  ;)

Of course, in Professional version you could schedule it but, I know, it's missing time schedule possibilities for that, I mean, you can schedule dayle, weekly, monthly... but you can't schedule at logon, at logoff, at boot  :'(
I've already asked this feature in the wishlist  :P

Two issues, now. My Avast version is 4.1 Home. I didn't find any ashUpd.exe, only one aswUpdSv.exe...

And the Start menu shortcut I'd like to use for updating both the program and the database would be like this one in the image - which didn't work and had an ilegal operation error.

Well, like I said, only in Professional version you could do that... not in Home  :-\
