Hi Angel

Download the aswClear utility to your desktop http://files.avast.com/files/eng/aswclear.exe

Uninstall Avast from add/remove
If it is not there then go to safe mode
Run aswClear for all versions (4,5,6, and 7 ) one after the other and then reboot

Then download a fresh copy of V7 to your desktop  http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/avast_free_antivirus_setup.exe

Uninstall the other AV
Reboot
Reinstall Avast
