Just one additional suggestion: update Windows and reboot. Try windows Update again and reboot... Until no new updates are available to apply. Validate / activate Windows product, and repeat the Windows updates checks (until no new ones are available). Only *then* install avast, reboot, update avast and add the license file.
ADD/REMOVE PROGS -> avast -> CHANGE/REMOVE -> REPAIR & REBOOT

You don't reinstall it.
You do either a repair or a clean installation.

The captcha is only there a few times.

1. Download avast! Pro Antivirus: http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_pro_antivirus_setup.exe
2. Follow instructions: http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility (Run this tool for all prior installed avast! versions..!!)
3. Reinstall avast! with the downloaded installer from point 1.
4. Reboot.
