Hi folks!

I recently installed Avast! 7 on a laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium & upgraded an earlier version to 7 on a desktop running XP.  Now I get a window at startup on both machines that says 'Complete Your Upgrade To Avast! 7.  You're almost done...............' and asks me to press the 'Finish' button to complete the upgrade.

When I press the 'Finish' button, the window closes and Avast! starts running and everything's fine.  Only problem is it keeps opening up at EVERY startup!  How do I make it go away?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

It was a clean install on the Windows 7 laptop & an upgrade on the desktop running XP.  Both machines show the same window at startup.

Thanks.

Thanks for the link ady4um.  Looks like this is not an uncommon problem. 

BTW, Google Chrome is my default browser on both machines.

Thanks again.
