Those who have or had the problem with reappearing gadget please open registry editor and check if there is a registry value named
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\AVAST Software\Avast\bIsGadgetInstalled
and what's its value.

I have a fresh install of v6.0.1000 on a fresh install of Windows 7, and I have the reappearing gadget problem for all users.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\AVAST Software\Avast\bIsGadgetInstalled is REG_BINARY 01 00 00 00

EDIT:
Correction - it's Vista, not Windows 7.

Two ways to get rid of it:

1. Control panel -> Programs and Features -> avast! -> Change -> uncheck the box "avast! gadget"

- OR -

2. right-click the desktop, select Gadgets, right-click the avast! gadget and select Uninstall.

The first one worked for me on Vista 32.bit.

The second one worked at first but after a restart it came back.

Cheers Vik.  ;)
