Try a repair of avast:
XP - Add Remove programs, select 'avast! Anti-Virus,' click the Change/Remove button and choose Repair, click next and follow.
Vista, win7 - Control Panel, Programs & Features, uninstall a program, select 'avast! Anti-Virus,' click the Change/Remove button and choose Repair, click next and follow.
Reboot after the repair.

What are you using for a firewall? Any other security software?
What makes you "believe" it's avast? I ask since you replied that you have had no pop-ups/alerts.
