What is your firewall since you are using Avast Free?  Make sure your firewall is not blocking anything that Avast needs (going in/out for connections).  You can use the Windows 7 FW if you do not have a third-party FW.

What other security software do you currently have or did you have in the past on this machine including:
- Antivirus (AV)
- Firewall (FW)
- Trial versions of AV, FW and other security programs
- Other security software (you mentioned Ad-ware, MBAM, SAS...any others?)

Is Avast being recognize by your Security Center on your machine?

Have you tried a Manual update?

Please update and post your MBAM log to your next post.  Thank you.
Mac 10.9.4 /Safari and Firefox (NoScript/AdBlockPlus/BetterPrivacy/Ghostey)/
Vista Home Prem (same add-on's)/Avast Free/Online Armor Premium Firewall/MBAM Premium)/ Mobile MBAM.

I would not want to be the one cleaning up the computer after this...  :o :o :o

Add Emsisoft to the list.

EDIT: Oh, and Spybot S&D.  :-X

You cannot simply run all that stuff together on one computer at the same time - beyond the huge slowdown, you'll get tons of conflicts.

Please, read this: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic260844.html/page__p__1441638#entry1441638

(And, that covers just having two products. You have at least 5 of them running in realtime.)  :o

All I have is listed in my signature. Plus MBAM+SAS (free versions on-demand only).

1. Ad-Aware has not kept up with the times and is not worth the hard disk space it consumes.
2. Advanced System Care is from IOBit!
3. Read what doktornotor says! Too many applications can slow down your system especially inferior ones.  ;)

Totally agree here that you need to delet all those program's metioned - ad aware, spybot, advanced system care, iobit 360 security way to many security programs and all the one's you have are also no good, avast and MBAM Pro would be the best combo but if you dont wish to pay for the $25 lifetime license the free is still a better choice.
Im quite amazed that your system is working at all with that stuff on there  :o
