Hi,

   Please confirm that avast! is running during the startup. Plus make sure that the Start Up type for avast! anti virus Service is set to Automatic. To check these settings

1) Windows Button + R -> in Run -> msconfig -> StartUp ->  Make sure that avast! is checked over there.

2) Windows Button + R -> in Run -> msconfig -> Services -> Check for the Start Up type for avast! Antivirus.

Please update us back.

May I suggest a different approach?

Download ANEW the setup.exe for the latest stable version of Avast.

Download the removal utility for Avast http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility.

Now reboot into Windows Safe Mode and run the removal utility. Please do NOT run it under Normal Mode, and do NOT use at this time the normal "Add / Remove Programs". Simply directly run the removal utility from Safe Mode.

Then reboot into Windows Normal Mode. DISable *ALL* gadgets. Search for any folder or file which file name contains the words "avast" or "alwil". The same for any such folder. The only file that should "survive" should be the just downloaded ANEW avast setup.

Right click the setup.exe -> properties -> "unblock" (if the button is available - not grayed out).

Right click the setup.exe -> "Run as Administrator". Follow the installation instructions. When the setup finishes, please reboot IMMEDIATELY. Avoid configuring avast, the registration or any update at this point. Simply proceed with the normal reboot.

Once you reboot, configure Avast and update it. Once it is working correctly, please reboot AGAIN.

If Avast now works correctly, only now re-enable all the gadgets. Reboot once more so to test if Avast is being displayed correctly.

Please report back

I really don't know. If the setup was already "unblocked", and you ran it with "right click -> run as administrator" and then reboot, but it is still not working with UAC (but it works without UAC), then I guess you need either someone more experienced to give some different idea, or some Avast Team member.
