Do you know how to have avast do a boot time scan? Normally if avast can not remove an infection that it detects, a boot time scan will kill the problem. right click the avast icon in the system tray, click start program, once the program has started click on the up arrow in the upper left corner of avast, click schedule boot time scan, select schedule all local disks, click the schedule button, then restart the machine.
