This is changed by the setting:

Settings --> "basic" tab --> "Show special scans in avast! user interface"

Thank you, that's the answer. But why this one have a "Show special scans in avast! user interface" as a default setting? Cause i just install it.

Not sure, I can't remember what the default setting is on that one. IIRC it was off when I installed avast, but that was a while ago now...
